  • The present erratum is in regards to our article entitled ‘Ancient DNA and the tropics: a rodent's tale’. We were made aware of problems with some of the ancient sequences submitted to GenBank and conducted a systematic review of all the files used in our study. We discovered that, unfortunately, an incorrect file was sent to GenBank and was also used in some of our downstream analyses. We immediately contacted GenBank, explained the situation and corrected the file. We have redone some analyses with the correct file and describe these changes below.
