Title Synonymy_table_valid_species_only
Downloaded 8 times
Description This spreadsheet contains synonymies between the species used in PHYLACINE Version 1.2.0, previous versions of this database, and other popular databases like EltonTraits and IUCN. It also contains information on the phylogenetic placement of species in PHYLACINE. Only the 5831 species considered valid in PHYLACINE Version 1.2.0 are included.

Title Synonymy_table_with_unaccepted_species
Downloaded 7 times
Description This spreadsheet contains synonymies between the species used in PHYLACINE Version 1.2.0, previous versions of this database, and other popular databases like EltonTraits and IUCN. It also contains information on the phylogenetic placement of species in PHYLACINE. Unlike Synonymy_table_valid_species_only, this spreadsheet also contains species that were not accepted in PHYLACINE Version 1.2.0 but are accepted in other databases like EltonTraits and IUCN.

Title Complete_phylogeny
Downloaded 7 times
Description This nexus file contains the dated phylogeny of all 5831 mammal species that lived during the last ~130,000 years including both extant and extinct species. 1000 individual trees are included in the phylogeny to capture uncertainties in branching times and topology.

Title Small_phylogeny
Downloaded 7 times
Description This nexus file contains the dated phylogeny of 4253 mammal species that lived during the last ~130,000 years including both extant and extinct species. Unlike the Complete_phylogeny, this phylogeny only includes the 4253 mammal species that could be placed phylogenetically through genetic data or unambiguous taxonomic constraints. 1000 individual trees are included in the phylogeny to capture uncertainties in branching times and topology.

Title Current
Downloaded 8 times
Description This file contains rasters of the current geographic ranges for all 5831 mammal species that lived during the last ~130,000 years including both extant and extinct species.

Title Present_natural
Downloaded 6 times
Description This file contains rasters of the present natural geographic ranges for all 5831 mammal species that lived during the last ~130,000 years including both extant and extinct species. Present natural ranges represent counterfactual scenarios showing where species would live today without strong anthropogenic impacts on their ranges. We stress that the present natural ranges for extinct species are not the fossil ranges where species occurred in the Pleistocene but rather where the species would be expected to occur now given today's climate.
