We strive to make all the data sets we collect available to the scientific community for use in analyses beyond those for which they were originally collected. The data used in several of our recent papers (and metadata describing them) have been archived and available for downloading at  repositories like Dryad, Figshare, and GenBank. We are also archiving data used in previously published papers, but if the data you need aren’t archived yet please contact Emilio Bruna to request them.

You can read more about why I think data archiving is important here: Bruna, E. M. 2010. Journals can advance tropical biology and conservation by requiring data archiving.  Biotropica 42(4): 399–401.
