PMID: 29321854
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3640

[…] mcmc was run for 108generations, with one tree sampled every 1,000 generations., to obtain more accurate divergence times for macaronesian lineages, we used the coalescent species tree method starbeast2 in beast v2.4.6 (drummond et al., ). these analyses were conducted for (1) azorina, c. jacobaea and c. bravensis, (2) musschia, and (3) w. lobelioides subsp. lobelioides. we used two […]

[…] pofad (joly & bruneau, ) using the genpofad algorithm (joly, bryant, & lockhart, )., to estimate the relationship among discovered bus, we constructed a lineage tree (=species tree) in the starbeast2 (bouckaert et al., ; ogilvie, bouckaert & drummond, ) using a yule prior with a constant population model. to estimate divergence times, we used an uncorrelated log‐linear clock model […]

[…] present study does this and revises the taxonomy for two species from northern australia, carlia johnstonei and c. triacantha. we introduce an approach that is based on the recently published method starbeast2, which uses multilocus data to explore the support for alternative species delimitation hypotheses using bayes factors (bfd). we apply this method, jointly with two other multispecies […]
