Basic Examples

Retrieve the ResourceObject:

In[1]:=
ResourceObject["Amniote Life History Database"]
Out[1]=

View the data:

In[2]:=
ResourceData["Amniote Life History Database"]
Out[2]=

Visualization

Create a word cloud scaled the species sizes:

In[3]:=
WordCloud[
 Normal[Rule @@@ 
   TakeLargestBy[
    ResourceData["Amniote Life History Database"][
     All, {"adult_body_mass_g", "common_name"}], First, 100]]]
Out[3]=

Analysis

Graph the phylogenetic trees:

In[4]:=
Graph[DeleteDuplicates[
  Flatten[{#class \[DirectedEdge] #order, #order \[DirectedEdge] \
#family, #family \[DirectedEdge] #genus, #genus \[DirectedEdge] \
#genus <> #species} & /@ 
    Normal[ResourceData["Amniote Life History Database"]]]]]
