Automatic Detection of Key Innovations, Rate Shifts, and Diversity-Dependence on Phylogenetic Trees

Figure 5

BAMM estimates of speciation and extinction rates for phylogenies simulated under constant-rate birth-death process.

(A) Relationship between speciation rate in generating model and reconstructed mean rate across the tree under BAMM. Solid black line: identity line, expected if λTRUE = λESTIMATED. Solid gray line: fitted OLS regression to estimates (black points) obtained using full BAMM model (multiple processes with time-variable speciation rates). (B) Corresponding extinction rate estimates for same set of trees.
