The average size in Mbps of the nuclear (orange), plastid (green) and mitochondrial (blue) genomes in phylogenetic groups.
<p>The plastome size remains similar in all the groups, whereas the chondriome seems to be inflating as plants are becoming more complex. The average genome size of gymnosperms is out of the scale due to the extremely large genome of Picea glauca, and the low number of species sequenced in the group.</p
