The COMPADRE Plant Matrix Database and COMADRE Animal Matrix Database contain demographic information in the form of projection matrices for approx. 1,000 plants and over 1,300 animal species that are derived from published and personally communicated research. The databases also contain taxonomic, phylogenetic, ecological, and biogeographic covariates.Detailed description
