Table 2 Estimates of tMRCAs of the most recent nodes (main sub-clades) and 95% confidence intervals.

From: Quaternary history and contemporary patterns in a currently expanding species

N & W Turkey 0.332 0.114 - 0.608 Constant
E. Turkey, Lebanon, Israel 0.417 0.148 - 0.711 Constant

Crete 0.381 0.116 - 0.688 Constant
  1. Estimates were obtained by assuming a coalescent prior of constant size or exponential growth and by including all the sequences of each given sub-clade. Names are the same as in Figure 2.
  2. * Results based on an exponential prior are reported because the rate of exponential growth (g) was significantly higher than 0 for this group.
  3. ** MCMC did not converge due to small sample size (N = 10 and 6 for Corsica and Libya, respectively)
