Abstract: TreeBASE is a relational database designed to manage and explore information on phylogenetic relationships (Sanderson et al., 1993, 1994; Donoghue, 1994; Donoghue and Ackerly, 1996; Piel et al., 1996; Morel, 1996; Piel et al., 2000). Its main function is to store published phylogenetic trees and data matrices. It also includes bibliographic information on phylogenetic studies, and some details on taxa, characters, algorithms used, and analyses performed. The database is designed to allow retrieval and recombination of trees and data from different studies, and it can be explored interactively using trees included in the database. TreeBASE therefore provides a means of assessing and synthesizing phylogenetic knowledge. (...) The database currently includes 6106 authors, 2946 studies, 8462 trees, and 82043 taxa" (as of December 2011). [Information of the supplier]
