There are no underlying differences in synonymous and non-synonymous rates between the two major clades of the Annonaceae that could have caused the erroneous modelling of substitution rates in previous analyses.
The second clade (also called the intermediate clade) consisted of 86 WOXs homologous to Arabidopsis WOX8, WOX9, WOX11, and WOX12, which are only from 28 vascular plant species, that is, 6 from Lycopodiophyta, 5 from coniferophyta, 23 from Liliopsida, and 52 WOXs from eudicots.
It fell into a different clade (IIIa) marked with red color while two haplotypes (SUD13 and SUD40) are both sharing clade 1V with other haplotypes from the Sudan region marked with yellow color Figure 3(b).
Robustness of each clade was assessed by bootstrap support (Felsenstein 1985) based on 2000 replicates with heuristic search, TBR branch-swapping algorithm, multrees option, and 100 random additions.
The genus is in the Stigmaphyllon clade (Davis & Anderson, 2010), where it is sister to the rest of the clade; see also note above under Aspicarpa.
To analyze the 48-bp fragment of COI for diagnostic SNPs, we used 100 replicates of tree search in Tree analysis using New Technology (TNT; level 1) with a strict consensus calculation to identify main clades that can be consistently recovered across tree space (Goloboff et al., 2008).
