Figure S1. With the exception of very small numbers of optimizations (k = 1), there is no change in the estimated ϵ value with increased numbers of optimizations.
Figure S2. (Left) Relationship between clade age and species richness for clades of age 10, 15, and 20, where species richness in each clade is the expected richness under a diversification process with r = 0.25 and ϵ = 0.5.
Figure S3. (A) Bimodality of relative extinction estimates for 3-clade dataset when species richness is simulated under a constant-rate process with r = 0.25 and ϵ = 0.5.
Figure S4. Varying species richness in any of the focal clades leads to predictable effects on relative extinction estimates.
Figure S5. (Top) Relationship between estimated relative extinction rates and the R ratio (ratio of richness of old clades to young clades).
