Figure 2

GAUT family tree. Three well-supported clades that suggest ancestral GAUTs are highlighted (blue, pink, and green clouds), and an unresolved polytomy near the root of the tree is indicated in light grey. The green and pink clades, as well as the polytomy, contain monocot, eudicot, Selaginella, and Physcomitrella members, whereas the blue clade does not have any Physcomitrella members. The algal root gene from Spirogyra pratensis falls within the polytomy.
