[…] to exploit its capacity for the visualization of large trees. in two cases where dna barcode analysis suggested potential cases of overlooked diversity, we also generated “geo-phylogenies” using gengis 2.2.0 [35] to better visualize the geographical structure of genetic variation. mega 5.2.2 [36] was also used to produce character-based trees using the maximum parsimony (mp) criterion (all […]
