  1. All the genome size estimates are from Ammiraju et al (2006) [4] except those of O. glaberrima and O. minuta which are from Martinez et al (1994) [54] and of O. coarctata which is a rough estimate because the real genome size of this species is unknown. We therefore used the value estimated for O. ridleyi [HHJJ; 1283 Mbp], which is also an allotetraploid species and shares the HH genome type with O. coarctata.
