Distribution of bootstrap support for phylogenetic position of three clades in genusPinus (tree-dependent). Results for tree-dependent site variability analyses are shown for: a) subsection Krempfianae , b) Pinus merkusii / P. latteri and c) Subsection Contortae . In a), P. krempfii was found sister to subsection Gerardianae for all An partitions. In b), circles correspond to placement of P. merkusii /P. latteri as sister to subsection Pinaster and triangles as sister to subsection Pinus. In c), circles correspond to placement of subsection Contortae as sister to subsection Australes and triangles as basal to both subsections Australes and Contortae; squares represent variable phylogenetic placements not including those represented by circles or triangles. For b) and c), monophyly of P. merkusii/P. latteri and subsection Contortae was supported at 100% bootstrap support for all An partitions.
