Comparison of the tree topologies obtained from the four genes against the topology of the concatenated dataset using four SH tests. Each dataset was forced to adopt the topology from the concatenated dataset and the log likelihood of this tree was compared with the log likelihood of the unconstrained tree. The taxa used in this analysis are shown in Figure 1b.
