Table 5 Marginal likelihood estimates from stepping stone analyses and 2logeBF test statistics comparing evidence for different analyses

From: The first known fossil Uma: ecological evolution and the origins of North American fringe-toed lizards

Model Stepping Stone loge
(Marg. Lik.)
Stepping Stone 2logeBF
Sand lizard calibration only − 5226.25 18.74
Sand lizard calibration + Pliocene calibration − 5222.04 10.32
Sand lizard calibration + Pleistocene calibration − 5216.88
  1. The analysis with the sand lizard calibration and the Pleistocene calibration for the crown node of the western clade of Uma (in bold) is the best supported analysis
