Data from: Timeframes of speciation, reticulation, and hybridization in the Bulldog bat explained through phylogenetic analyses of all genetic transmission elements

Faisal Ali Anwarali Khan, Caleb D. Phillips & Robert J. Baker
Phylogenetic comparisons of the different mammalian genetic transmission elements (mtDNA, X-, Y-, and autosomal DNA) is a powerful approach for understanding the process of speciation in nature. Through such comparisons the unique inheritance pathways of each genetic element and gender-biased processes can link genomic structure to the evolutionary process, especially among lineages which have recently diversified, in which genetic isolation may be incomplete. Bulldog bats of the genus Noctilio are an exemplar lineage, being a...
