A huge synthesis of published phylogenies has been published by Hinchliff et al. The tree and underlying data are available to browse and download, and due to the open nature of the work, newly published data can be incorporated into the tree. rOpenSci have created an R package, roti, for interfacing with the Open Tree of Life API.
