The most parsimonious phylogenetic tree found has a length of 39, a consistency index of 0.77 and an homoplasy index of 0.23.
In this study, well-established methods of character state reconstruction were used to trace evolutionary changes in genome size along the branches of a phylogenetic tree that describes the evolution of major grass lineages.
The trnL sequences were aligned against each other, creating a phylogenetic tree in an effort to find some molecular basis for sequence divergence in the highly conserved trnL sequence and thus to aid in the investigation of the unknown taxon.

Moreover, the results of homology analysis showed maximum similarity with sequences of goat and sheep sequences (partial) and were found to be 99.93% and 99.35%, respectively which was further confirmed by constructing phylogenetic tree which indicated that Sindh ibex, domestic goat, and sheep share a common ancestor.
