chinensis chloroplast genomes, as well as the chloroplast genomes of several other species in the Ranunculales. We found that both the numbers and types of chloroplast SSRs are variable in different species (Table 3 and Supplementary Tables S10-S11).
chinensis within the Ranunculales, we used 42 genes existing in all 24 chloroplast genomes, including 21 sequenced chloroplast genomes from species in the Ranunculales and two species from the Magnoliaceae as an outgroup.

8), and palmately-compound leaves in other members of the order Ranunculales (e.g.
In pea (and close relatives within legumes; see Champagne et al., 2007), UN1FOLIATA (UN1), a LEAFY/FLORICAULA ortholog, regulates compound leaf development (Hofer et al., 1997), whereas, in Aquilegia (Ranunculaceae; Ranunculales), FRUITFULL, an APETALA1/FRUITFULL homolog, has been co-opted to promote leaf complexity (Pabon-Mora, 2012).
This problem is also present in some more basal eudicots, such as Ranunculales
(Endress, 1995), Trochodendraceae (Endress, 1986), Buxaceae (von Balthazar & Endress, 2002), and Myrothamnaceae (Jager Zurn, 1966).
