Values represent the test statistics with the P-value on the second line for each clade. The range of values represents the upper and lower bounds generated when the analyses were repeated with 1,000,000 random resolutions of polytomies with different degrees of symmetry. Indices are Colless Index (IC), Shao and Sokal Index (B1) and the M statistics MΠand Mσ.
