Data from: Mitochondrial DNA as a tool for reconstructing past life-history traits in mammals

Emeric Figuet, Jonathan Romiguier, Julien Y. Dutheil & Nicolas Galtier
Reconstructing the ancestral characteristics of species is a major goal in evolutionary and comparative biology. Unfortunately, fossils are not always available and sufficiently informative, and phylogenetic methods based on models of character evolution can be unsatisfactory. Genomic data offer a new opportunity to estimate ancestral character states, through: (i) the correlation between DNA evolutionary processes and species life-history traits, and (ii) available reliable methods for ancestral sequence inference. Here we assess the relevance of mitochondrial...
