Table 1 Summary statistics for each dataset (Full, Medium, Short) and pairwise comparisons of uncorrected p-distances illustrated in Fig. 3

From: Widely used, short 16S rRNA mitochondrial gene fragments yield poor and erratic results in phylogenetic estimation and species delimitation of amphibians
