Data from: Divergence time estimation using fossils as terminal taxa and the origins of Lissamphibia

Robert Alexander Pyron, Robert Alexander Pyron & R. Alexander Pyron
Were molecular data available for extinct taxa, questions regarding the origins of many groups could be settled in short order. As this is not the case, various strategies have been proposed to combine paleontological and neontological datasets. The use of fossil dates as node age calibrations for divergence time estimation from molecular phylogenies is commonplace. In addition, simulations suggest that the addition of morphological data from extinct taxa may improve phylogenetic estimation when combined with...
