Nature: AnimalTraits – a curated animal trait database for body mass, metabolic rate and brain size

Nature: AnimalTraits – a curated animal trait database for body mass, metabolic rate and brain size. “Trait databases have become important resources for large-scale comparative studies in ecology and evolution. Here we introduce the AnimalTraits database, a curated database of body mass, metabolic rate and brain size, in standardised units, for terrestrial animals. The database has broad taxonomic breadth, including tetrapods, arthropods, molluscs and annelids from almost 2000 species and 1000 genera.”
