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

Figure 4

Performance of the Bayesian (MB) approach under different sample sizes.

θmit = 0.025. υmit = 0.01. The population size parameter for nuclear genes was 2.5 times smaller. The nuclear substitution rate was tenfold lower. The line with circles shows the average percent error across replicates. Solid lines indicate the lowest and the highest estimate still within the range IQ±1.5 IQR. n, number of sequences sampled per locus.
