Fig. 5

Reconstructed probability of jumps in the rate of cetacean cranial asymmetry. The model also predicts the number of jumps which may have occurred. The size of the circle indicates the probability of the jump occurring in that position in the clade with the largest circle (here, 0.750) indicating the highest probability of a jump occurring. The colour of the circle indicates the number of inferred jumps, where dark red = 5 and pale red = 1. The asymmetry value is given as the sum of radii per specimen (∑pspec). A trace of the chain is provided in Additional file 1: Fig. S10—Gelman diagnostics for the two chains. Phylogeny based on Lloyd and Slater [29]
