Note. Models: for M3 (discrete model), ω is free to take the number of values indicated in brackets (k); these values are homogenous in all branches of the tree; for MD, as explained in Figure 1 (b), one category of ω is allowed to differ between the two paralogous genes clades of the tree [33]. np: number of free parameters; logL: log-likelihood; LRT: likelihood ratio test statistic between indicated models; one (respectively two) asterisk indicates that the probability of observing such an LRT or higher under the compared model is <0.05 (respectively <0.01), assuming that the LRT follows a χ2 distribution with the difference of free parameters between the compared models as the number of degrees of freedom.
