The Portal Project Teaching Database is a simplified version of the Portal Project Database designed for teaching. It provides a real world example of life-history, population, and ecological data, with sufficient complexity to teach many aspects of data analysis and management, but with many complexities removed to allow students to focus on the core ideas and skills being taught.
The database is currently available in csv, json, and sqlite.
Use of this dataset should cite: http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.1314459
If you want to use the Portal Project database for research we recommend obtaining the data from the main database or by using the portalr R package (which provides easy access to and processing of the main database). The main database includes more kinds of data, continues to the present instead of stopping in 2002, and includes additional QA/QC.
