Data requirement simulations. a Gene rates categories. Annotated chloroplast genes divided into rate categories: slow, medium and fast evolving genes. Only genes in alignments bigger than 800 nt (blue line) were considered further. b Data requirements derived from analyses of subsets of data. Graph shows data required to achieve both >90 % (orange) and 100 % (blue) bootstrap support from random gene alignments. c Data requirement by rate categories. Bootstrap support >90 % in relation to the amount of data needed for the gene rates categories. Medium (yellow) and fast (red) evolving genes reached high support with significantly less data than slow evolving genes (green)
