Title Phylogenetic trees
Downloaded 19 times
Description Phylogenetic trees used in our analyses, in Newick format. The main trees are found in Dinosaur trees Benson 2017.tre. Other trees are timescaled subsets of these trees, described with reference to a timescaling method (mbl1, cal3, Hedman) and clade name (Dinosauria, Sauropodomorpha, Ornithischia, Theropoda).
