Figure 4

Test of mutational saturation in the four-taxon data set. (A) The mean number of variants per variable site was averaged for ten groups often according to evolutionary rate (vertebrate-arthropod distance = diamonds, nematode branch length = squares). (B) The minimum number of nucleotide changes required for unique nematode variants were also averaged according to evolutionary rate. Trend lines are indicated (solid for vertebrate-arthropod distance, dashed for nematode branch length).
