Analyses with the Nuclear Data

Bayesian analyses with nuclear genes only resulted in a tree that was identical to that shown in Figure 1, except that Proboscidea and Hyracoidea are sister-taxa within Paenungulata (posterior probability = 0.88). In addition to the Hyracoidea + Proboscidea clade, other groups that were supported with posterior probabilities less than 0.95 included Fereuungulata (0.65), Carnivora + Pholidota + Perissodactyla (0.53), and Euarchonta (0.94). Support for tree shrew + flying lemur remained high (posterior probability = 0.97).
