Table 1 Prior Schemes (PS) used in pairwise BPP analyses. Prior distributions on τ represent two relative divergence depths (deep and shallow) and on θ represent two relative mutation rate scaled effective population sizes (large and small)

Prior Scheme (PS) Effective pop. size Divergence depth Gamma distribution for prior
1 Large Deep θ = Γ [1, 10] and τ = Γ [1, 10]
2 Large Shallow θ = Γ [1, 10] and τ = Γ [2, 2000]
3 Small Shallow θ = Γ [2, 2000] and τ = Γ [2, 2000]
4 Small Deep θ = Γ [2, 2000] and τ = Γ [1, 10]
