Phylogeny and quantative trait of carnivora

Description

This data set describes the phylogeny of carnivora as reported by Diniz-Filho et al. (1998). It also gives the body mass of these 19 species.

Usage

data(carni19)

Format

carni19 is a list containing the 2 following objects :

tre
is a character string giving the phylogenetic tree in Newick format.
bm
is a numeric vector which values correspond to the body mass of the 19 species (log scale).

carni19.phy <- newick2phylog(carni19$tre)
par(mfrow = c(1,2))
symbols.phylog(carni19.phy,carni19$bm-mean(carni19$bm))
dotchart.phylog(carni19.phy, carni19$bm, clabel.l=0.75)
par(mfrow = c(1,1))
