Appendix D. Congruence between analytical and null model approach.

Mean continental null model expectations (as calculated with 1000 repetitions) against the analytical expectation of PD using the framework of Nipperess and Matsen (2013). This model only uses a given number of species and a phylogenetic tree to produce an analytical expectation of the corresponding PD assuming that each species can be drawn with equal probability and without replacement from the species pool.
