  1. P-values of the approximately unbiased test (AU), Shimodaira-Hasegawa test (SH) and approximate Bayesian posterior probability (PP) for nine topologies tested before (whole) and after (reduced) removal of fast-evolving positions. The best topology is indicated in bold with the following abbreviations: Myo = Myomorpha; Ano = Anomaluromorpha; Casto = Castorimorpha; Hyst = Hystricomorpha; Sciu = Sciuromorpha.
