hierarchy.info: Taxonomy hierarchy information for plant traits

Description Usage Format References


An example of hierarchy information: plant taxonomy information. The plant kingdom is characterized by a taxonomic hierarchy. In the taxonomy, individual plants are categorized to species, species to genera, genera to families, and families to phylogenetic groups. Due to the data privacy, we perturbed a subset of taxonomy information from TRY database and not present the phylogenetic groups information. This data set represent the hierarchy as a taxa table as follow: the 1st column is the plant index in the same order as X data, the 2nd column holds species information, the 3rd column holds genus information, and the 4th column holds family information. Figure below represents a schematic of the taxanomy hierarchy structure:
