Data Overview

What’s in store?

COMPADRE and COMPADRE contain thousands of plant and animal species with tens of thousands of matrix population models and ancillary information. These databases are under continuous development, and more data are released periodically. We maintain a list of species/studies “in store” that we have not yet released for COMPADRE and COMADRE. If you know of some species/study not included herein, please contact us with the source here.

How is the data collected and error-checked?

COMPADRE and COMPADRE data are obtained from (mostly) published literature. We aim to be as transparent as possible about how this is done. You can find our data digitization protocol here.
