Defines functions reconcile.fossils.taxonomy

Documented in reconcile.fossils.taxonomy

#' Reconcile existing fossil and taxonomy objects
#'
#' This function uses edge identifiers (\code{edge}) and fossil sampling times (\code{hmin}) to reassign fossil species identifiers (\code{sp, origin}) using an existing taxonomy object.
#' It can only be used if exact fossil sampling times are known (i.e. \code{hmin = hmax}), otherwise edges containing multiple species may be indistinguishable.
#'
#' @param fossils Fossils object.
#' @param taxonomy Taxonomy object.
#'
#' @return An object of class fossils.
#' @examples
