primates each have at least two items, a
dat object. The
phy object is a phylogenetic tree of class 'phylo' (see
dat object (e.g.,
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caudata$phy is an unpublished glomogram of mostly family level phylogenies from the literature.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).
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
whales object is a dataset including a tree and a taxon richness matrix (see
