Supplementary Material

Table S1: Genome size across duckweeds. 1C–value expressed in megabase (Mbp) with standard deviation and picograms (1pg = 978 Mbp), somatic chromosome number (2n), latitude, longitude, altitude and location (when recorded) were deposited in this table. The order of 23 species were arranged in the degree of primitivity by their primitive and derived characteristics [13]. Latitude, longitude, altitude and location are cited from [23].
