Lineages-through-time plots for the carnivores (a) as a whole and (b) for the individual families. In (a), the thick black line indicates the number of lineages through time according to the best divergence time estimates, with the grey area indicating the numbers according to the upper and lower 95% confidence intervals on these dates; the red lines present the slopes for the three different time segments indicated by goodness-of-fit tests. In (b), only the plots according to the best divergence time estimates are presented.
