Table 2 The average Kimura 2-parameter, genetic distance was calculated among all insertions for each element. Highly mutable CpG sites were excluded from distance calculations

  1. Distances were only calculated if the element occupied more than 10 kilobases in a genome. For species were elements were absent or occupied less than 10 kilobases of their genome, values are given as "NA"s. A limited number of transposons are shown here. A complete table displaying the average genetic distances of all elements is provided as Additional file 1: Table S1
