  • A G log-likelihood test was used to test the null hypothesis that the ratio of replacement to silent differences within and between species is equal. The G log-likelihood score (G = 4.461) was significant to reject the null hypothesis (P < 0.03). Numbers in parentheses are the corrected values for multiple mutations based on a parsimony analysis within species and a Jukes-Cantor (Jukes and Cantor 1969) model between species.
