Given are the numbers of protein sequences includeda from each of the 22 fully sequenced Viridiplantae genomes studied. A full list of sequences and respective accession numbers are given in Additional file 1.

aActual family sizes may be larger, because partial sequences and those leading to distortions in the phylogenies were excluded here.
