Table 1

Base Tree Simulations. Results of simulated datasets when a random, NJ-JTT, and the true tree are used as the base tree for the model selection procedure and the sequence length is 500 characters. Each entry is the number of times out of 100 replicates the correct model was selected by each measure.
