NOTE: Before using the timetrees linked below, it is important to read the paper and understand the meaning of unsmoothed, smoothed, and interpolated timetrees. Briefly, smoothed means that the polytomies are resolved by random placement of branches, which is used sometimes in diversification analyses. Interpolated timetrees have species lacking any data and which are placed in the tree taxonomically (e.g., a dataless species added to a genus node), only for uses where complete species coverage is needed. If you want a “normal” phylogeny or timetree, use “unsmoothed”, although keep in mind it will have some polytomies.
NOTE: The last two files below provide consensus support values (number of trees supporting a node/count) where count is the total number trees potentially pertaining to the node (e.g., 5 of 5 study trees = 100%, 3 of 4 study trees = 75%). It is not the same as a bootstrap value. We list it here for general reference but recommend that you examine the original published studies if you need support values. For example, only 1 of 2 studies (50%) may support a node, but that single supporting study may be a genomic study with high nodal bootstrap support and the other study may report only weak evidence for an alternative topology, in which case the 50% consensus support value listed here underestimates the true support for the node. Also for 20% of nodes, no support values are given because the node was newly created using methods described in the paper (Hedges et al. 2015) and data from published studies. Be aware that some tree viewing software will show support values of zero for such nodes lacking information, but examination of the Newick file in a text editor will reveal the true value (= no value) of those nodes. For 3.5% of nodes, the support value is zero because the partition was resolved in the NCBI taxonomy tree but not in constituent studies.
