Additional file 2:

ML-analysis of the central domain of the control region of Bucerotidae. GTR + G + I model of sequence evolution. Bootstrap support from 1,000 replicates is given at the nodes. Note that published sequences for Bucorvus leadbeateri and Tockus erythrorhynchus sequences are indistinguishable from one another, which points to the possibility that the published Bucorvus sequence originates from a contamination.
