Figure S1. Number of expected substitutions per site estimated in all perissodactyl families for the three genetic partitions: mitochondrial (black), nuclear coding (grey), and nuclear intronic (white). Values were obtained using PAUP* from patristic distances, considering three subsets of data that correspond to each perissodactyl family. A star on the phylogenetic tree indicates the highest support for all three approaches [bootstrap maximum parsimony (BPMP) = BP maximumlikelihood = 100%, posterior probability = 1.00].

Table S1. Likelihood ratio test performed on independent and concatenated genes of perissodactyls. Likelihood values for the best tree and the alternative tree (under the molecular clock assumption) are shown with the P-values. Significant differences are highlighted in bold.

Table S2. Genetic characterization of mitochondrial and nuclear genes. Parameters considered are: total sequence length, number and proportion of parsimony-informative characters (No. of sites, Var.), nucleotide frequencies (% A, C, G, T), relative nucleotide rate substitution (AG, TC, CA, AT, CG, GT), amongst-site rate heterogeneity (alpha parameter), proportion of invariable sites (Inv. sites), transition/transversion ratio (TI/TV), consistency index (CI), and saturation (S).

Appendix S1. List of primers used to amplify partial sequences of mitochondrial and nuclear genes.
