Phylogenetic trees of 29-taxon data set (including Gossypium) based on 61 chloroplast protein-coding genes using maximum parsimony (MP) and maximum likelihood (MP). (A) The MP tree has a length of 51,056, a consistency index of 0.46 (excluding uninformative characters) and a retention index of 0.61. (B) The ML tree has a ML value of – lnL = 296670.545. Numbers at nodes indicate bootstrap support ≥ 50%. Arrows indicate taxa that have lost the rpl22 gene. Ordinal and higher level group names follow APG II . Taxa in red are members of eurosid I and Vitis is indicated in blue. Thicker lines in tree indicate members of Eudicots.
