I have a .csv with various anatomical measurements of animals. Each of these entries also has family/genus/species level classification.

I want some way to assign Order to each of these entries, within R.

Is there a package for this in R? Or am i going to have to do it in python etc?

Thanks

Do you manually want to add the information? Or are you asking if there is a package that can associate genus to order for you?

The taxize package has a number of tools to query various phylogenies. Can you provide an example of a family/genus/species for which you would like the order?

Yes automatically using a package.

I have a .csv, of which one column is a list of species names, another is a list of family names etc. I want to add a column that has the Order of each of these entries.

Ive done some molecular taxonomic assignment before, so i know these things are possible, but google is failing me.

Cheers
