TRY Databases

The Data Explorer is based on a reduced version of the TRY Main Database, in the following called TRY Web Database. The Web Database was reduced due to the TRY Intellectual Property Rights, for performance reasons, and to avoid confusion for the user.
The differences are the following:

TRY Main DatabaseTRY Web Database
Trait dataOriginal and standardized valuesAvailability information only
CovariatesAll as submitted by data owners/providersLatitude and longitude only
Trait NamesOriginal and standardizedStandardized only
SpeciesOriginal and standardizedStandardized only

When data are released for a proposal, they originate from the TRY Main Database and therefore contain more and more detailed information than the Data Explorer reveals.
