A web space to store published phylogenies of diatoms and other algae. The repository holds two general types of files:

1) methodologicaly explicit phylogenetic trees based on phenotypic or genetic data. These are trees derived from coded data via a tree building algorithm.

2) informal hypotheses about evolutionary relationships.These are diagrams reflecting author's interpretation or beleif. They are derived from data that in most cases is not formally coded or procesed through a tree building program. There wont be many of these to start with.

Each tree is represented by the following:

1) the phylogenetic tree displayed in the wonderful OneZoom Tree of Life Explorer format

2) doi or link of the publication where this tree comes from (if available)

3) TreeBase or Dryad study ID of the publication where nexus files of the tree and data can be found (if available)

4) If 2) and/or 3) are missing, a full reference where the tree comes from is provided.

Dryad: doi 10.5061/dryad.85q50

Chronogram of Pinnularia and outgroup taxa from Souffreau et al (2011, Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution).

TreeBase: 11769

Tree of diatoms and a number of closely and distantly related eukaryotes from Theriot et al. (2009, European Journal of Phycology).

TreeBase: 10114

Note: Branch lengths and node ages on this tree are meaningless. The TreeBase entry for this tree does not include branch lengths. To make the tree compatible with OneZoom, polytomies were first randomly resolved and branch lengths added by sampling from a normal distribution. This artificial "phylogram" was then smoothed to a relative time chronogram with root age 1 billion years. This is a larger tree with 1336 taxa and the diatoms are at the very tip.

Tree of diatoms and Bolidomonas as outgroup from Theriot et al. (2010, Plant Ecology and Evolution).

TreeBase: 10953

Note: Node ages on this tree are arbitrary as the published tree is not proportional to time. The phylogram reported in the paper was smoothed to a relative time chronogram with root age 500 million years.

Tree of diatoms and Bolidomonas as outgroup from Ashworth et al. (2013, Journal of Phycology).

Note: Node ages on this tree are arbitrary as the published tree is not proportional to time. The phylogram reported in the paper was smoothed to a relative time chronogram with root age 500 million years.

Tree of raphid diatoms from Ruck and Theriot (2011, Protist).

Note: Node ages on this tree are arbitrary as the published tree is not proportional to time. The phylogram reported in the paper was smoothed to a relative time chronogram with root age 100 million years.

TreeBase: S11192

Tree of heterokonts and outgroups from Goertzen and Theriot (2003, Journal of Phycology).

Heterokonts and outgroups - SSU tree

Heterokonts and outgroups - SSU + rbcL tree

Note: Branch lengths and node ages on these trees are meaningless. The TreeBase entry for these trees does not include branch lengths. To make the tree compatible with OneZoom, branch lengths added by sampling from an exponential distribution with rate=10. This artificial "phylogram" was then smoothed to a relative time chronogram with root age 500 million years.

Tree of Skeletonema and outgroups from Sarno et al. (2007, Protist).

Note: Branch lengths and node ages on this tree are meaningless. The TreeBase entry did not include branch lengths. To make the tree compatible with OneZoom, branch lengths added by sampling from an exponential distribution with rate=10. This artificial "phylogram" was then smoothed to a relative time chronogram with root age 20 million years.
