Table 3 Divergence time estimates in million years (Ma) from the most recent common ancestor (mrca) of all group members from each Lacerta lepida phylogroup estimated using the method of Saillard et al. (2000) using three different mutation rates; and divergence time estimates for the main nodes recovered in the phylogenetic analysis using a mean mutation rate of 2% in Beast.

  1. For each node the mean divergence time and the lower and upper values of the highest probability distribution (HPD) are presented. (see text for a detailed explanation of each method).
  2. (a) Divergence times were calculated using mutations rates drawn from a normal distribution with a mean mutation rate of 0.01 mutations/site/million years and a standard deviation of 0.0015.
  3. n.a: not applicable
