5 Distribution of branching types in the Calamoidcac on a genus level cladogram. Key the same as Fig.
nigra, what corroborates the topography of the cladogram proposed by this study.
Both analyses obtained the same result, two cladograms, with 105 steps, consistency index 57 and retention index 76 (Figure 55A and B).
For instance, if T is the cladogram depicted in Figure 2, then
(4) The enriched taxa in control and LDC 8-week fecal microbiota were represented in Cladogram. The central point represents the root of the tree (Bacteria), and each ring represents the next lower taxonomic level (phylum to genus: p, phylum; c, class; o, order; f, family; g, genus).
Figure 1 a can be represented as a cladogram to recognise relationships, based on shared homologies of climate and parent material, by the branching of taxa (Fig.
The geodispersal area cladogram indicates the relative timing in which barriers were removed facilitating faunal exchange (Rode & Lieberman 2005).

The parsimony endemicity analysis generated an exclusive cladogram with 111 steps, a consistency index of 0.84, and a retention index of 0.58.
Each dataset analysis with MIX produced over 100 cladograms, and only one cladogram was selected (usually the first since the differences between the cladograms were in the upper minor branches) to represent each analysis (Figures 1 and 2).
Cladogram can be divided into two branches: one branch is animal, the other branch is plant.
The mesosternum flat ([15.sup.2]) is also a homoplastic character that allows the recognition of the members of this clade (see Table 2); however, it is ambiguous concerning the optimization in the cladogram.
