Figure 8

Lineage divergence times, inferred polyploidy events and number of MST subfamily loci inferred from EST data, presented in phylogenetic context. Phylogeny showing hypothesized relationships among major land plant lineages [70], approximate divergence times [70], with vertical bars indicating inferred polyploidy events [61]. Colored squares indicate presence of one or more subfamily homologs within a lineage, numbers within squares indicate the number of expressed loci, and *'s indicate EST databases with too few ESTs to infer numbers of expressed loci. Species names on selected lineages indicate EST databases searched in this study.
