Galapagos_datalist_2types: Colonization and branching times of 8 terrestrial avifaunal...

Description Usage Format Source See Also


A list containing the colonization and branching times of the terrestrial avifauna in the Galapagos. This list can be generated using the DAISIE_dataprep function, which converts a user-specified data table into a data object, but the object can of course also be entered directly. It is an R list object with the following elements.

The first element of the list has three components:

$island_age - the island age
$not_present_type1 - the number of mainland lineages of type 1 that are not present on the island
$not_present_type2 - the number of mainland lineages of type 2 that are not present on the island

The following 8 elements of the list each contains information on a single colonist lineage on the island and has 5 components:

$colonist_name - the name of the species or clade that colonized the island
$branching_times - island age and stem age of the population/species in the case of Non-endemic, Non-endemic_MaxAge and Endemic anagenetic species. For cladogenetic species these should be island age and branching times of the radiation including the stem age of the radiation.
$stac - the status of the colonist

* Non_endemic_MaxAge: 1
* Endemic: 2
* Endemic&Non_Endemic: 3
* Non_endemic: 4

$missing_species - number of island species that were not sampled for particular clade (only applicable for endemic clades)
$type1or2 - whether the colonist belongs to type 1 or type 2. In this dataset only the finches are type 2




A list with 9 elements the first of which contains 3 elements and the following 8 containing 5 components.
