refers to the number of individuals whose 16S rRNA and cytb were studied; numbers in parentheses are the number sequenced for the D loop.
*One sample was from a live animal and three were from skins of dead animals.
Table 2. Analysis of the robustnes of the phylogenetic tree in Fig 2.
Bootstrap support for the indicated node is tabulated as percentage of 1,000 pseudoreplicates for NJ and MP and percentage of 300 pseudoreplicates for ML. CP is the confidence probability (26) of the branch in the NJ tree leading to the indicated node.
Results are shown for constraining trees to have the indicated species as the sister taxon to G. nigra or having the three species form a trichotomy. The number of extra steps compared to the MP tree with G. chilensis as the sister to G. nigra is given. *, P < 0.05; **, P < 0.025; ***, P < 0.005 for Templeton's (23) tests, indicating the MP tree is siginficantly better than any of the alternatives.
