standard / ## Figure 6.
Comparison of lineage-specific evolutionary rates. The graph is a plot of the 54 root-to-tip distances calculated from branch lengths
estimated under the GTR+Γ_{8 }model on the reference topology (see Figure 5) for the concatenations of rRNA-coding
(y-axis) and protein-coding (x-axis) mitochondrial genes. Symbols corresponding to
non-bilaterian outgroups (green squares), tunicates (red triangles), and all other
bilaterians (blue diamonds) are indicated. The phylograms showing the branch lengths
inferred from each dataset are presented with the highly evolving tunicates figured
in red. The linear regression dotted line is figured with its associated equation
and correlation coefficient. The y = x line is also indicated to underline the difference
in average evolutionary rate between the rRNA and protein mitochondrial partitions.
