  1. For each variable, 7 models were evaluated: five dual-equilibrium O-U models corresponding to a single change in environment at the base of each of the five indicated clades; the single-equilibrium O-U model, in which all clades are modelled as occurring in a single environment; and the Brownian motion (constant variance) model. Values in each cell are Bayes information criterion (BIC) weights for: the dual-equilibrium O-U model/the single-equilibrium O-U model/the Brownian motion model. The first value is interpreted as the posterior probability that the origins of the clade were associated with a shift in environmental parameters. Measurement error for the lower portion of the table was estimated as indicated in the text.
