  1. The support values were obtained from reduced consensus trees, which were made by pruning all but either the selected 170 or 119 taxa from the bootstrap trees and making a consensus from the pruned trees. The first 5 columns show the number of clades in the reduced consensus trees that have the specified level of bootstrap support. The last column shows the average percent of quartets (4-taxon unrooted trees) that are identical between the pruned bootstrap trees. We tested if the observed changes in the bootstrap support or average quartet similarity are greater in the 170 taxa with 5-genes than they would be from a random sample of 170 taxa. Similarly, we tested if the changes in support are less in the 119 taxa with 3 genes than they would be from a random sample of 119 taxa. Significant results are noted with "*" symbols (* p ≤ 0.05, ** p ≤ 0.01, *** p ≤ 0.005).
