Comparison of the estimated 95% HPD interval for five example contrasts of mtDNA and nDNA age estimates from all data, those from datasets pruned of the saturated partitions, and the prior age expectation based on the effective prior (*analysis run without sequence data): Acanthomorpha (spiny-rayed fishes); MRCA Fundulidae and Poeciliidae (topminnows and livebearers); MRCA African and American cichlids, MRCA Tetraodontidae and Diodontidae (smooth and spiny puffers), and Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes). Lines indicate bounds of the 95% HPD interval, circles correspond to mean age estimates.
