Contribute Data to TRY
You are welcome to contribute plant trait data to the TRY initiative at any time.
Benefits of submitting data are:
You can also send data by email. However we recommend the upload, because this will give us the required information.
Plant trait data in TRY are public under the Creative Commons Attribution License CC BY. However, TRY accepts an embargo period of two (optionally plus another two) years, during which the contributor can restrict data availability or request involvement in publications. Contribution to TRY does not surrender ownership of the data: the contributor remains the owner of the data and will be informed of any data request to TRY that may involve his/her data (if so chosen).
To make your data in TRY findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (see FAIR Data Principles) we need some additional information about your dataset(s) and the traits:
There are no special requirements for the format of data contribution. Trait data are accepted in any way as long as they are explicitly related to plant species. The preferred format is MS Excel with species information, traits and auxiliary data in columns and observations in rows.
