Detailed LHC phylogeny. The maximum likelihood tree from PhyML, with 246 taxa based on a 266 aa alignment (PhyML/AA). This tree is equivalent to that in Figure 1, but contains all the sequence names and support values from additional analyses. The support values for each branch where obtained as follows: PhyML with amino acids (top left), MrBayes with amino acids (bottom left), Garli with nucleotides (top right), MrBayes with nucleotides (bottom right). The individual LHCs are colored by taxonomic lineage: chlorophytes (green), cryptophytes (light blue), fucoxanthin-containing dinoflagellates (light purple), peridinin-containing dinoflagellates (dark blue), haptophytes (pink), heterokonts (orange), rhodophytes (red).
