Gamma Distribution Simulations. Results of simulations when the α parameter of the gamma distribution was varied between 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0. The sequence length was kept constant at 500 characters and the proportion of invariable sites was 0.2. Each entry is the number of times out of 100 replicates that the correct model was selected.
