Table 1 Node age estimates and clock rate estimates obtained through Bayesian analyses

From: Past climate changes, population dynamics and the origin of Bison in Europe

Age estimates of the nodes (kya)
 Node Age from HVR (95 % HPD) Age from mitogenome (95 % HPD)
 Root Bovina 1080 (1550–700) 927 (1064–790)
Bos Taurus/B. bonasus 768 (886–657)
B. indicus/B. taurus 157 (185–130)
B. grunniens/B. priscus 317 (370–265)
B. priscus 151 (193–119) 114 (134–95)
B. bison 21 (16–27) 11 (7–14)
 All B. bonasus 438 (643–284) 246 (283–212)
B. bonasus Bb2 105 (158–75) 87 (93–71)
Clock rate estimates (per site * year)
 Partition Rate from HVR (95 % HPD) Rate from mitogenome (95 % HPD)
 HVR 5.4 (3.9–6.9) × 10–7 4.6 (3.7–5.6) × 10–7
 RNA 2.5 (2.1–3.0) × 10–8
 Coding (first to second positions) 2.4 (2.0–2.8) × 10–8
 Coding (third position) 9.9 (8.5–11.4) × 10–8
