  1. μ L = mutation rate per base pair per generation for each locus L.
  2. θ sp = combined parameter 4 N e μ Co of species 'sp', or their ancestor 'A', relative to the mitochondrial mutation rate μ Co
  3. N e represents the effective population size.
  4. t = time of divergence in years.
  5. m L = locus-specific migration rates per generation for each locus L.
  6. * = unreliable estimate or limit due to flat or incomplete posterior probability distribution sampled.
  7. ~0 = effectively zero, although the lowest 'bin' does not actually include zero.
