Impact of Deep Coalescence on the Reliability of Species Tree Inference from Different Types of DNA Markers in Mammals

Figure 3

Performance of the Bayesian (MB) approach under different multilocus strategies and different combinations of mammalian evolutionary parameters.

Sample size, n = 5. The line with circles shows the average percent error among the 50 replicates. Solid lines indicate the lowest and the highest estimate still within the range IQ±1.5 IQR. Columns show the different diversity parameter combinations and rows correspond to the different multilocus strategies. mit, mitochondrial. nuc, nuclear. θmit, population size parameter for mitochondrial genes. υmit, substitution rate for mitochondrial genes. The corresponding θ for nuclear genes was 2.5 times smaller. The nuclear substitution rate was tenfold lower in each case.
