Figure 8.

Scatter plots showing relationships between aspects of SSR frequency and other characteristics. (top) The relationship of "short" SSRs and "long" SSRs. "Long" SSRs are the 10,10.12 repeats. "Short" SSRs are the 8,8,9 repeats with the 10,10,12 repeats excluded. These are shown for the 24 taxa in Table 7. (middle) The relationship between total SSR number and genome size (in nucleotides) for the 24 taxa. (bottom) The relationship of A+T-richness (the overall A+T percentage of the genome) and the frequency of A and T mononucleotide repeats for the 10 taxa involved in the more detailed comparison. No other SSR category showed a relationship to any aspect of nucleotide composition.
