The two mcmctree columns correspond to the unpartitioned and partitioned analyses. The divergence time estimates are in millions of years before present. HPD, highest posterior density; rate, evolutionary rate (× 10-8 substitutions/site/year); κ, transition-transversion parameter of the HKY model; α, shape parameter of the rate heterogeneity Γ-distribution. AF, see Additional File 1.
