BioTIME

BioTIME Consortium

The BioTIME database contains raw data on species identities and abundances in ecological assemblages through time. The database consists of 11 tables; one raw data table plus ten related meta data tables. For further information please see our associated data paper.

This data consists of several elements:

  • BioTIMESQL_06_12_2017.sql - an SQL file for the full public version of BioTIME which can be imported into any mySQL database. 
  • BioTIMEQuery_06_12_2017.csv - data file, although too large to view in Excel, this can be read into several software applications such as R or various database packages. 
  • BioTIMEMetadata_06_12_2017.csv  - file containing the meta data for all studies. 
  • BioTIMECitations_06_12_2017.csv - file containing the citation list for all studies. 
  • BioTIMECitations_06_12_2017.xlsx - file containing the citation list for all studies (some special characters are not supported in the csv format). 
  • BioTIMEInteractions_06_12_2017.Rmd - an r markdown page providing a brief overview of how to interact with the database and associated .csv files (this will not work until field paths and database connections have been added/updated).

Please note: any users of any of this material should cite the associated data paper in addition to the DOI listed here.
