Fig. 7

Schematic view of the main results regarding evolution of X. citri subsp. citri. The lineage originated ~ 16.0–46.0 thousand years ago (kya), with an associated event of host switch from Fabaceae to Rutaceae, within the Indian Subcontinent. A* and A2 likely share a great portion of ancestral polymorphism, whereas A and Aw had a larger impact from recombination (“Rec”) on their genetic varibility (especially in A, the generalist pathotype) prior to each respective diversification. Colors of the most common haplotypes in each lineage are the same as in previous figures (except for A2, which due to its high genetic similarity to A* according to BAPS v6.0, is also shown in blue). Dotted lines correspond to minor genetic contributions from given haplotypes (as detected in BAPS v6.0) or inferred from the ML-unicopy phylogeny.
