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

Description Usage Format Source See Also


A table containing the colonization and branching times of the terrestrial avifauna in the Galapagos. Each row on the table represents and independent colonisation event. The table has four columns.

$Clade_name - name of independent colonization event
$Status - One of the following categories:
* Non_endemic: for cases where both island and non-island populations of the species have been sampled)
* Non_endemic_MaxAge: for cases where island population of the species has not been sampled and only the age of the species is available)
* Endemic: applicable for both cladogenetic or anagenetic species
* Endemic&Non_Endemic: when endemic clade and mainland ancestor has re-colonized
$Missing_species - Number of island species that were not sampled for particular clade (only applicable for endemic clades)
$Branching_times - 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 branching times of the radiation including the stem age of the radiation.
