  1. Estimates based on Bayesian analysis of mtDNA control region (CR) and ATPase region in BEAST. Eastern wolf is represented by sample CAN004377 from Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada; Coyote is represented by sample CAN000142 from Texas, United States; North American grey wolf is represented by CAN001806 from the Northwest Territories, Canada, Eurasian wolf is represented by a grey wolf from Russia (Genbank Accession DQ480503). Clades are identified in Figures 2a and 2b. OW = Old World; NW = New World.
