DateLife: leveraging databases and analytical tools to reveal the dated Tree of Life

Luna Luisa Sanchez Reyes, Emily Jane McTavish & Brian O'Meara
Achieving a high-quality reconstruction of a phylogenetic tree with branch lengths proportional to absolute time (chronogram) is a difficult and time-consuming task. But the increased availability of fossil and molecular data, and time-efficient analytical techniques has resulted in many recent publications of large chronograms for a large number and wide diversity of organisms. Knowledge of the evolutionary time frame of organisms is key for research in the natural sciences. It also represent valuable information for...
