Figure 3

Relationship between area extinction rate and relative likelihood of range pairs in the dispersal- extinction- cladogenesis (DEC) analysis. The plot depicts the value of the range pair with the largest relative likelihood at each node and extinction rate; note that the top pair of ranges is not necessarily consistent across extinction rates. The ‘zero’ extinction value is the auto-optimized estimate (4.285 × 10-9 Myr-1). Node numbers correspond to those in Figure 2a.
