Ancestral character reconstruction of the epidermal cell shape and the straightness of anticlinal wall by applying a ML tree block in Mesquite with a maximum likelihood approach and MK1 model. Node A: the ancestral node of sect. Cinnamomum s.l. had sinuous anticlinal walls and irregular cell shapes or not, the probability being only 56.54%; Node B: the ancestral node of sect. Camphora s.s. possessed straight or curved anticlinal walls and polygonal cell shapes, the probability being 99.17%.
