Rates of change in coding sequences
dN dS dN/dS
coxI 0.028 (0.015) 1.440 (0.638) 0.021 (0.014)
hsp82 0.022 (0.014) 0.951 (0.749) 0.031 (0.032)
mmr-b main repeats 0.044 (0.035) * 0.287 (0.204) * 0.144 (0.088) *
mmr-b final repeats 0.050 (0.036) * + 0.303 (0.183) * + 0.157 (0.095) * +

Mean of all pairwise comparisons within the B. plicatilis species complex, with (s.d.); * indicates a value statistically significantly different than that for hsp82 or coxI; + indicates a value statistically significantly higher than that for mmr-b main repeats (Mann–Whitney U-test, p < 0.001, two tailed test).
