Table 1

Bootstrap values (MP and ML), posterior probabilities (BI), and phylogenetically informative indels that correspond to the 41 nodes shown in Figure 1. Posterior probabilities from BI using two different model-partitioning strategies are shown. Bootstrap values for ML were calculated using a hill-climbing algorithm (ML-hc) and a genetic algorithm (ML-ga); see the methods section. Rows in bold show two nodes (3 and 4) where bootstrap support values were increased when Arctonyx collaris and Meles meles were excluded from the data set (46 versus 44 taxa) and node 33 corresponds to support values for the sister group relationship between Martinae and the clade (A. collaris + M. meles). × = node not present because constituent taxa excluded; ×* = node not recovered in the respective analysis.
