Consensus plastid phylogeny. Shown is the plastid phylogeny used in this study, based on the current literature. Dashed and solid vertical brackets denote paraphyletic and monophyletic groups, respectively. Although the tree is shown as entirely resolved, some parts are not well supported (e.g., relationships among Cyanophora, green algae, and red algae; among bryophytes; among chromalveolates; and whether Amborella plus Nymphaea or Amborella alone is the sister of all other angiosperms).
