[…] each family, the positions of species were resolved with the barcode sequence data. according to this method, a phylogenetic tree was first generated for the sampled species using the online program phylomatic (webb and donoghue, 2005). this tree specified the taxonomic relationship of the 32 families, but within each family species were arrayed as a polytomy. the topology of this tree […]

[…] muscle v.3.8.31 [38] and refined manually using mega v.6.05 [39]. the four gene alignments were then concatenated using seqstate v.1.4.1 [40]., phylogenetic branch lengths were estimated on the phylomatic cladogram from the molecular matrix by maximum likelihood using raxml v.8.0.0 [29]. the raxml output from the original 425 family maximum likelihood tree showed extreme molecular rate […]

[…] alignment altogether represents 91% of native genera in britain (according to plantatt; [17]). we constructed a family-level constraint tree based on the apg iii classification [18] included with phylomatic [19]. after these analyses were performed, fourteen of the sequences were found to have sequencing errors that caused frame-shifts at the extreme 3′ end of the sequences. the corrected […]

[…] had a bootstrap node support >80. below the family level, most of the genera appeared well resolved although with lower bootstrap support values. we then used the apgiii phylogeny as generated by phylomatic as our family level backbone phylogeny and resolved the within family phylogenetic classification by adding the results obtained from the rbcl phylogeny. branch lengths and dated nodes […]

[…] files., i created a phylogeny for all the herbaceous old field plants i surveyed by combining a backbone tree based on the apg phylogeny ( generated by phylomatic ( with subtrees created using downloaded sequences. i made three such trees for three families that lacked resolution […]
