Estimations of timing of splitting events between Zonotrichia capensis lineages
Mean “fast” clock (5%) Low 95% HPD (2%) Mean (2%) High 95% HPD (2%) Mean “slow” clock (1%)
ABC (32) 0.58 0.70 1.45 2.38 2.88
BC (21) 0.34 0.40 0.86 1.42 1.71
B (16) 0.15 0.15 0.37 0.64 0.74

TMRCA and 95% confidence intervals (in units of millions of years) for three different nodes in the tree shown in Figure  2. Values were estimated using BEAST and ND2 sequences with a ≈2% per million year divergence rate [52] (in bold). Sample sizes are in parenthesis after each node. The mean values obtained using alternative calibrations of 1 and 5% per million years (“slow” and “fast” clocks, respectively) are also reported.
