a Alternative and null models, see Additional File 6, Table S3 for more information on models and Log-likelihood values, b P value calculated from a χ2 distribution, c number of sites significant in Bayesian post-hoc tests (P < 0.05). The alignment, after deleting gaps, was composed of 122 codons. Tests that we deemed weakly significant because Bayesian post-hoc tests did not detect relevant AA are shown in italics.
