Table 1 Penalised likelihood estimates of root node and internal node using our Bayesian consensus phylogram.

From: Host-driven diversification of gall-inducing Acacia thrips and the aridification of Australia

Calibration Points (myr) Smoothing value Root age Internal age
Root: 25 14.454 25.00 8.97
Root: 15 15.849 15.00 5.31
Root: 10–15 13.183 10.01 3.61
Internal: 5 69.183 13.66 5.00
Internal: 2–5 6.918 9.31 3.38
  1. The internal node corresponds to the most recent common ancestor of the K. rugosus species complex. Ages are in units of millions of years (myr). Rate smoothing values were calculated using a cross validation method implemented in Sanderson's r8s program [83].
