Ancestral state reconstructions across the set of 18,000 post burn-in BEAST trees for the Mellisugini based on parsimony in which species with migratory and sedentary populations (Selasphorus platycercus and Calothorax lucifer) were coded as polymorphic (a) or migratory (b), and estimation of ancestral states of migratory behavior carried out with the tree obtained from the Bayesian analysis under the ML criterion and the MK1 model using all samples (c). Ancestral state reconstructions results obtained for the MP, ML and re-rooting methods using the data set with several samples (d). Each square at the tips of the tree represents the state of each extant taxon and the pie charts at each node represent the probability of the state of the common ancestor present at that node. Dark gray squares indicate fully migrant individuals and white squares indicate sedentary individuals. Asterisks next to species names indicate species with migratory and sedentary populations.
