Applying analytical models to two clades, eudicotyledons and paleoherbs, three filogeny models were explored and analyzed with parameters that vary from low extinction rates to high speciation rates. Filogeny Model I suggest that the probability ty of obtaining a difference in species distribution, between the two sister clades, as the observed, or higher, varies between 15.2% with high speciation rates and 16.7% with low extinction rates. In Filogeny Model II the probability of obtaining a

In contrast, probability of obtaining a species distribution like the observed or higher in Filogeny Model III varies from 2.5% with high speciation rates to 2.8% with low extinction rates. Accordingly with the tree Models, the probability of obtaining a numerical difference at the species level between eudicotyledons and its sister group are low. However, results suggest the eudicotyledons are characterize by higher evolutionary rates (speciation-extinction) compared with other groups of angiosperms.
