Table 1 List of positively selected sites of rbcL of Ilex with posterior probabilities (PAML, Codeml, model M8) > 0.95 in the 5 subsets of the Worldwide dataset. Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 represent the 4 phylogenetic plastid groups of [36] (Asian/North-American Group 1, Asian/North/American Group 2, American Group 3, and Eurasian Group 4. The 20-species sample represents a selection of the 116 specimens of [36], reflecting the 4 groups and a wide geographic distribution (see Fig. 3). In red, selected Ilex residues belonging to the list of the 20 most often positively selected sites detected in the 151 lineages of Kapralov and Filatov [29]

From: Exceptionally high rates of positive selection on the rbcL gene in the genus Ilex (Aquifoliaceae)
