Table 4 Sequence divergence (p-distance) among IGS repeats in ten individuals representing four species in the Daphnia pule x species complex.

From: Evolution of the nuclear ribosomal DNA intergenic spacer in four species of the Daphnia pulex complex

Repeat type1 Mean p-distance within clusters Range of p-distance values Mean p-distance between clusters Range of p-distance values
A 0.040 0.023-0.079 0.125 0.054-0.176
B 0.027 0.005-0.080 0.168 0.045-0.286
C 0.013 0.011, 0.014 0.057 n/a
  1. 1. Repeats of each type have been grouped by cluster based on the NJ trees in Figures 6, 7 and 8.
