  • a The minimum value is 0.0. The percentage of 0.0 values is 7.7%.

  • b Tajima's D divided by its minimum (Schaeffer 2002).

  • c The minimum value is −1.0. The percentage of −1.0 values is 22%.

  • d The interspecific divergence was corrected after Jukes and Cantor (1969).

  • e Fay and Wu's H divided by its minimum (see materials and methods).

  • Distributions are based on silent sites.
