Using a supermatrix approach to explore historical biogeography, divergence times and phylogenetics of Saxifragales.

The Saxifragales are an angiosperm order consisting of about 15 families and 2500 species. Although the Saxifragales are consistently recovered as monophyletic in molecular DNA analyses, familial relationships within the order are unclear. In addition, while there are both cosmopolitan and narrowly distributed families within Saxifragales, no explicit attempt to reconstruct the intra-ordinal biogeographic history of Saxifragales has yet been published. Here, we employ a supermatrix approach to examine phylogenetic relationships, divergence times, and the biogeographical history of major lineages of Saxifragales. The supermatrix dataset is composed of over 600 species representing all 15 Saxifragales families, and contains over 40,000 chloroplast and nuclear nucleotide sequences. Divergence times were estimated with BEAST, and biogeographical reconstructions were obtained using S-DIVA and BioGeoBEARS.
