Appendix B (TABLE B1). Results of the phylogenetic signal tests for 18 ecophysiological traits among 14 Ficus species. Blomberg et al. (2003)'s K statistic and P value of observed vs. random variance of Phylogenetic Independent Contrasts (PICs) were calculated on log10-transformed data. Traits that showed strong phylogenetic signal by both tests (K > 1 and P < 0.05) were highlighted in bold face. Abbreviations for traits are as defined in Table 1.
