  "abstract": "<p>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.</p>\n\n<p>This data consists of several elements:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>BioTIMESQL_24_06_2021.sql - an SQL file for the full public version of BioTIME which can be imported into any mySQL database.&nbsp;</li>\n\t<li>BioTIMEQuery_24_06_2021.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.&nbsp;</li>\n\t<li>BioTIMEMetadata_24_06_2021.csv&nbsp; - file containing the meta data for all studies.&nbsp;</li>\n\t<li>BioTIMECitations_24_06_2021.csv - file containing the citation list for all studies.&nbsp;</li>\n\t<li>BioTIMECitations_24_06_2021.xlsx - file containing the citation list for all studies (some special characters are not supported in the csv format).&nbsp;</li>\n\t<li>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).</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>Please note: any users of any of this material should cite the associated data paper in addition to the DOI listed here.</p>\n\n<p>To cite the data paper use the following:</p>\n\n<p>Dornelas M, Ant&atilde;o LH, Moyes F, Bates, AE, Magurran, AE, et al.
