  1. All topological tests are done versus the unconstrained (best) tree. Values in bold indicate statistically significant results.
  2. 1ML: Maximum likelihood; AU: Approximately Unbiased test (Shimodaira, 2002); SH: Shimodaira & Hasegawa (1999) test. P < 0.05 suggests that the two solutions are significantly different.
  3. 2HME: The harmonic mean of sampled likelihoods as estimated by Tracer. BF: Bayes Factor. A log10 Bayes factor > 2 indicates decisive evidence for statistically significant difference between solutions.
