Estimates of substitution rates in Melanohalea from the BEAST analysis of the concatenated six-loci dataset estimated under a relax molecular clock using fixed substitution rates for the nuLSU, mtSSU, and RPB 1 markers [12]
Concatenated gene tree analysis Multilocus species tree analysis
Locus Rate Rate 95% HPD Rate Rate 95% HPD
ITS 3.296 2.49 – 4.11 3.41 2.67 – 4.17
LSU 0.684 0.58 – 0.80 0.71 0.62 – 0.80
mtSSU 0.701 0.42 – 1.05 0.66 0.44 – 0.92
MCM7 1.649 1.26 – 2.05 1.71 1.36 – 2.08
RPB1 1.548 1.27 – 1.82 1.70 1.57 – 1.83
RPB2 1.391 1.08 – 1.75 1.51 1.20 – 1.82

Units: substitution/site/year X 10-9. HPD: highest posterior density interval.
