Lineage Through Time plot. Lineage Through Time (LTT) plot for liverworts (blue), mosses (green), ferns (purple), gymnosperms (yellow) and angiosperms (red) with indication of average global temperature [22] and cool climate modes (blue bars [21]). Triangles pointing up or down indicate diversification rate shifts as detected with LASER (increasing or decreasing, respectively, see Methods). (A) unconstrained tree; (B) constrained tree (i.e., angiosperms not older than 130 Ma). The y-axis indicates the number of lineages N on a logarithmic scale.
