[…]  3a). the geographical distribution of pyrrosia s.l. mostly followed hovenkamp4 and referred to other literatures3,8,32. we carried out biogeography analyses using the dec model112,113 implemented in rasp 3.2114. we inferred possible biogeographical scenarios across 1000 trees obtained from the beast analysis in the dec analysis. a composite akaike weight was used to summarize biogeographic recons […]

[…] 2012). figtree 1.4.0 (rambaut, 2009) was used to display mean ages and highest posterior density intervals at 95% for each node., we used the bayesian binary mcmc (bbm) method implemented in rasp 3.0.0 to estimate the possible ancestral areas of triplostegia with the trees obtained from the intraspecific beast analysis (yu, harris, blair, & he, 2015). three geographical regions […]
