(1) Range data/species-site matrix:
Data was initially accessed from the Phylogenetic Atlas of Mammals (Phylacine; Version 1.2) database: https://github.com/MegaPast2Future/PHYLACINE_1.2
Geographic range data, as rasters, were downloaded from Phylacine for the Current and Present-natural scenarios. All mammals had the values extracted from the raster layers and stored in columns to create a species-site matrix for all cells across the world.
Each cell was identified as (1) belonging to a specific continent, and (2) whether it was attached to the mainland during the last glacial maximum (to identify islands to include).
(2) BBPMM model predictions on raw data
Predictions from a Binomial Bayesian Phylogenetic Mixed Model (BBPMM) on species-range losses.
Further methods in paper.
(3) Species' geographic range rasters
Methods in paper.
All data can be analysed using the code stored in a public repository on Github: https://github.com/osmiddleton/Middleton-et-al-2020-_Carnivore-ensemble-modification_ProcB.
