Appendix A. A table presenting information about the angiosperm fossils used in the molecular phylogenetic tree calibration.

Table A1. The angiosperm fossils used in the molecular phylogenetic tree calibration. A log-normal distribution (mean = 1.0, SD = 0.1) was used for each fossil calibration and the prior distributions only differed by the offset (estimated age of grouping). CG = Crown group and SL = stem age.
