Details

The objects caudata, chelonia, carnivores, geospiza, and primates each have at least two items, a phy object and a dat object. The phy object is a phylogenetic tree of class 'phylo' (see read.tree). The dat object (e.g., caudata$dat) is a named vector of (natural log-transformed) body sizes for each group. The salamander data (object caudata) also includes the systematics for all recognized taxa (object caudata$tax) as well as a time-calibrated family-level phylogeny (caudata$fam) from Zhang and Wake (2009). The object caudata$phy is an unpublished glomogram of mostly family level phylogenies from the literature. The backbone for that tree is from Zhang and Wake (2009).

The amphibia object is a set of three trees, the last of which is a time-scaled estimate of the Pyron and Wiens (2011) tree (see congruify.phylo).

The whales object is a dataset including a tree and a taxon richness matrix (see medusa).
