Length and information content of <i>mtMutS</i>, <i>cox1</i> and 18S alignments, alone and concatenated.

<p>Alignments 1–8 were used in phylogenetic analyses. Alignments 8–12 were used to compare levels of variation and information content, based on data from 42 individuals. Gblocks: alignment shortened using Gblocks. N. nt: alignment length in nucleotides. Nt. min-max: shortest and longest sequences (de-gapped). N. var and N. pars: number of variable and parsimony-informative sites (and percentage of total alignment length). Model (AIC) and Model (BIC): model of evolution that best described the data, based on jModelTest runs.</p>
