[…] the noncore region, in order to investigate the unique properties of them., a chronogram for 23 taxa raxml phylogeny was constructed using the method of penalized likelihood [39], implemented in r8s v1.81 [40]. the estimated origin time of cyanobacteria (2700~ 3500 million years ago, mya) [41] and the divergence time between escherichia coli and salmonella enterica (140 mya) [42] were used […]

[…] all msa, keeping the individual coordinate information to be used as a partition for the phylogenetic analysis. we used raxml software (option –f e) to obtain ml estimates of branch lengths and r8s software v 1.80 (sanderson 2003) to linearize the unrooted ml using the penalized likelihood algorithm. for the last step, we constrained the ages of two internal nodes according to the fossil […]

[…] supermatrix and the constraint tree. node support was estimated using bootstrap values with 500 replicates. finally, we calibrated the branch lengths of this ml phylogenetic tree using the program r8s v1.70 (sanderson, 2003) with the nprs method, which was employed in the analysis of the phylogenetic structure of plant communities. we used seven fossil calibration points. minimum ages were set […]

[…] analysis with 1000 replicates was conducted to assess the percentage support for each node. finally, an ultrametric tree was obtained using the non-parametric rate smoothing approach in the r8s software package48., we measured a total of six traits to quantitatively represent several important axes of plant functional strategy. specific leaf area (sla), leaf phosphorus content (lpc) […]

[…] and maximum age constraints, trees (with branch lengths calculated by mrbayes) in the 9 tree files were converted to time trees (with branch lengths scaled to time) using penalized likelihood in r8s version 1.7 [47, 48]. for each tree, the smoothing parameter was optimized using cross-validation and a logarithmic penalty function implemented. trees where the branch lengths had been converted […]
