Data TablesFor each climatic parameter, we include more detailed versions of the example tables discussed above. A reader may obtain paleoclimatic estimates from their own paleobotanical data in the manner demonstrated in the two examples in the previous section. The data tables are spreadsheets for both the unweighted and weighted approaches. For a given climatic parameter, one can simply copy the columns corresponding to the list of taxa present in a North American vegetation assemblage and paste these into a new spreadsheet. By summing the values across the rows, one can determine the climatic values aligned with the range of complete overlap of the species involved (and the maximum sum of weights from the weighted matrices). The midpoints of these ranges can then be designated as the MCR_{un} (unweighted) and MCR_{wt} (weighted) estimates of the climate represented by the vegetation list.
The "Data Tables" are labeled as such and are titled and scaled as follows:
