From: Sphenodontian phylogeny and the impact of model choice in Bayesian morphological clock estimates of divergence times and evolutionary rates

Fig. 7

Relative rates of morphological evolution for each morphological clock partition. Rates extracted from the tree with the best performing model combination under multiple partitioned morphological clocks: autocorrelated clock + no sampling of ancestors + maximizing diversity + two-time-slices skyline FBD + truncated normal prior on the root age. Branch colors and values indicate relative evolutionary rates. a Rates of evolution for skull characters. b Rates of evolution for mandibular and dental characters. c Rates of evolution for postcranial characters. d Linear regression between skull and mandibles+dentition evolutionary rates. e Linear regression between skull and postcranial evolutionary rates. f Linear regression between mandible+dentition and postcranial evolutionary rates
