Global Biotraits Database


Empirical data on how biological traits respond to environmental drivers, such as temperature, moisture, light, salinity, and pressure.

This database represents by far the largest and most comprehensive biological trait database ever compiled. Currently, we have a total of 2445 intraspecific trait response curves from a total of 1508 species.


We expect researchers from a wide diversity of disciplines, such as ecology, biology, cell biology, agriculture, entomology, botany, biostatistics, physics, and computer science, to use these data to shed light on how natural systems respond to environmental drivers. 

This looks really cool, but after playing around with it for a while I couldn't actually manage to download any data. I emailed Van Savage and I'll definitely add this if/when the site is functional (unless someone else beats me to it :) ).
