Data from: Tree imbalance causes a bias in phylogenetic estimation of evolutionary timescales using heterochronous sequences

David Duchêne, Sebastián Duchêne & Simon Y. W. Ho
Phylogenetic estimation of evolutionary timescales has become routine in biology, forming the basis of a wide range of evolutionary and ecological studies. However, there are various sources of bias that can affect these estimates. We investigated whether tree imbalance, a property that is commonly observed in phylogenetic trees, can lead to reduced accuracy or precision of phylogenetic timescale estimates. We analysed simulated data sets with calibrations at internal nodes and at the tips, taking into...
