Additional file 4: Figure S3:

Molecular phylogeny of the family Proteaceae that highlights the 20 sister pair groups used for the present analyses. The branch lengths and scale bars are proportional to the dN/dS branch lengths calculated from the estimates of trees for dN and dS (Additional file 2: Figure S1 and Additional file 3: Figure S2).
