  1. The number of species within each genus for ITIS, NCBI and Sp2000. Each source shows varied species content for each genus, most notably for Pinus and Drosophila. The last two columns are: the number of trees returned for the genus queries performed directly on TreeBASE; and the number of additional trees returned using species names found using all three classifications in a hierarchical query in TCl-Db.
