The abbreviated models are the following: HKY: Hasegawa, Kishino, Yano [79]; GTR: General Time Reversible [80,81]; TrN: Tamura-Nei [82]; TVM: Transversion Model; + Γ: variation in rates among sites modeled using a gamma distribution [83]; +I; a proportion of sites modeled as invariant [79]. N taxa = number of available taxa on public databases. N sites = Number of aligned nucleotides.
