Results of the index of substitution saturation test for combined data sets, where homoplasy due to multiple substitution had been previously been detected in the loop partitions. Iss.c S and Iss.c A: critical values for the index of substitution saturation (ISS) if the true tree is symmetrical (S) or asymmetrical (A). Iss > Iss.c indicates saturation.
