Evolutionary Biodemography

Research Area


Keywords: Data and Surveys; Biodemography

As having access to high-quality data is a prerequisite for most biodemographic research, the development, establishment, and curation of databases is of utmost importance. The COMADRE (plants) and COMPADRE (animals) databases, which contain population projection matrices, are available online with open access. The DATLife database (animals) contains age-specific data on mortality, fertility, age at maturity, and maximum lifespan and survival.

Projects of this Research Area:

  • DATLife – The Demography of Aging across the Tree of Life – Database Project details
  • COMPADRE Plant Matrix Database & COMADRE Animal Matrix Database Project details
