The AVONET database contains comprehensive functional trait data for all birds, including six ecological variables, eleven continuous morphological traits, and information on range size and location. Raw morphological measurements are available from 90020 individuals of 11009 extant bird species sampled from 181 countries. These data are also summarised as species averages in three taxonomic formats, allowing integration with a global phylogeny, geographical range maps, IUCN Red List data, and the eBird citizen science database.

The full AVONET dataset including raw morphological measurements as well as species averages for each taxonomy is provided in 'AVONET Supplementary dataset 1'

Data on duplicate measurements for a subset of individuals are provided in 'Supplementary dataset 2'

Data and Code to reproduce the analyses and figures presented in Tobias et al 2022 (Ecology Letters doi: https://doi.org/10.111/ele.13898) is included in the 'ELEData' and 'ELECode' zip files.
