    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This data consists of several elements:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;BioTIMESQL_02_04_2018.sql - an SQL file for the full public version of BioTIME which can be imported into any mySQL database.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;BioTIMEQuery_02_04_2018.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.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;BioTIMEMetadata_02_04_2018.csv&amp;nbsp; - file containing the meta data for all studies.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;BioTIMECitations_02_04_2018.csv - file containing the citation list for all studies.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;BioTIMECitations_02_04_2018.xlsx - file containing the citation list for all studies (some special characters are not supported in the csv format).&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;BioTIMEInteractions_02_04_2018.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).&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;Please note: any users of any of this material should cite the associated data paper in addition to the DOI listed here.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;To cite the data paper use the following:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Dornelas M, Ant&amp;atilde;o LH, Moyes F, Bates, AE, Magurran, AE, et al.
