Differences were quantified by the normalized partition metric [79,80]. Number of shared taxa and partition metric values appear above and below the diagonal, respectively.

a supertree constructed from literature and gene trees; b supertree constructed from literature, nuclear DNA genes, and mitochondrial DNA supermatrix tree; c supertree constructed from literature and molecular supermatrix trees; d supertree constructed from gene trees only; e supertree constructed from literature trees only; f supertree from Bininda-Emonds et al. [1]; g supermatrix tree.
