  1. Detailed legend: Sister comparisons included in this analysis. For each pair, we list the two clades compared (a “+” indicates where more than one genus were combined as one sister lineage of a comparison). The taxon from which the sequence was taken is listed, with “spp” indicating that several congeneric sequences were combined (see Table S1 for details). The species richness for each sister lineage is taken from Sauquet et al. (2009), and the number of available gene sequences for each comparison, out of the six chloroplast genes analysed in this study (See Additional file 1: Table S1). The estimated substitution rates for each sister lineage are given for Total branch lengths (all substitutions) as well as synonymous (dS) and non-synonymous (dN) substitutions, and estimates of ω (dN/dS).
