Figure 3.

Timetree of the divergence of Lemur malarial pathogens in relation to biogeographical events. Divergence times are estimated with MultiDivTime (MDT) and Beast using the Papio/Macaca split as calibration. The two horizontal bars show the composite credibility intervals (cCrIs) using conservative (6-8 mya; upper) or informative (6-14.3 mya; lower) boundaries. CrIs from MDT are shown in yellow, those from BEAST in blue and the overlap between the two is shown in green. There is substantial overlap between the informative cCrI and the Madagascar colonization time period (maroon bar) when the informative calibration is used. Geologic epochs are shown. Max mol. time: maximum boundary from molecular time estimates; Pl: Pliocene; P: Pleistocene; H: Holocene.
