Table 3 Statistical analyses to evaluate how the DNA fragments influenced correct species identification success rates

From: Assessment of four DNA fragments (COI, 16S rDNA, ITS2, 12S rDNA) for species identification of the Ixodida (Acari: Ixodida)

Rates of species identification success (±SE) 0.9527 ± 0.0327a 0.9326 ± 0.0399b 0.9556 ± 0.0106c 0.9490 ± 0.0365d
  1. In the Duncan’s multiple range test, columns with different superscripted letters (a, b, c and d) indicate significant difference at P=0.05 between mean values; no significant difference was seen between mean values with the same superscript.
