Estimated years of emergence for RHDV lineages. Mean years are shown with 95% HPD intervals for the entire virulent RHDV clade and each of its four lineages. Closed circles denote estimates based on the VP60 gene, while open circles denote estimates based on the RdRp gene. Years of emergence estimated in the present study are bolded, while those derived from the literature are not. Estimates based on datasets that included AY269825 are shown in red, while those based on datasets that excluded AY269825 are shown in blue. The source of the MCC tree from which each estimate was inferred is indicated on the x-axis.
