The Australasian marsupial family Macropodidae includes potoroos and bettongs (Potoroinae) as well as larger kangaroos, wallabies, and pademelons (Macropodinae. [...] Key Result Diverse phylogenetic methods all provided robust support for a macropodine clade that excludes the banded hare wallaby. The split between macropodines and the banded hare wallaby was estimated at approximately 20 million years ago (mya) using the Thorne/Kishino relaxed molecular clock method. Whereas our molecular results neither…Expand
