Repent that you lack the figure!

This week (yes, it’s taking me the whole week ;) I am reading the article ‘Can We Avoid “SIN” in the House of “No Common Mechanism”?’ by Mike Steel, and realized that there was something missing: the figure 2, on the final version. In order to get it you must download the “Advance Access” version of it, since the figure got lost in the final, printed edition.

This figure doesn’t seem essential for the comprehension of the article (it was not present in the arxiv version of the manuscript, for instance), but you may feel lost as I did when reading the paragraph that depends on it. So here it is for completeness:

Oh, and by the way, the paper talks about the kinds of phylogenetic models that lead to statistical inconsistency (SIN) of the tree inference, and the “no common mechanism” are the models where the number of generating processes (with unique parameters) increase as the sequence length increases.
