Using host species traits to understand the consequences of resource provisioning for host–parasite interactions

PMCID: 5836909
PMID: 29023699
DOI: 10.1111/1365-2656.12765

[…] in resources, mates or habitat (Dingle, ).For mammals (n = 23), trait data were derived from PanTHERIA. For the 33 non‐mammals and for mammals where trait values were missing, data were derived from AnAge (, Animal Diversity Web (ADW) at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology (, ARKive ( or the prima […]


Are disease reservoirs special? Taxonomic and life history characteristics

PLoS One
PMCID: 5509157
PMID: 28704402
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0180716

[…] ete and biased towards well-studied taxa, we augmented our database using other compilations of mammalian life history data [–]. Male and female ages at sexual maturity are reported separately in the AnAge database [] but were averaged for inclusion in our dataset. For any species with missing data for all ten life history traits, we searched the literature for adult body mass, which is correlated […]


Host and viral traits predict zoonotic spillover from mammals

PMCID: 5570460
PMID: 28636590
DOI: 10.1038/nature22975

[…] e data set existed for the species in our dataset. We used the body mass recorded in the PanTHERIA database for 709 species. For 3 species, we used the second choice option, body mass recorded in the AnAge database. For 11 species, we used the third choice option of the extrapolated body mass recorded in PanTHERIA, which is based on body length or forearm length, depending on species. For 36 speci […]


Duplication of the mitochondrial control region is associated with increased longevity in birds

PMCID: 5032695
PMID: 27542284
DOI: 10.18632/aging.101012

[…] Lifespan and body weight information for 1436 avian species were determined by combining the datasets of AnAge [], GlobalSpieces ( and Valcu et al. [] as well as literature information. In ambiguous cases, where the datasets had different records for a species, the longest ma […]


Mitochondrial Inverted Repeats Strongly Correlate with Lifespan: mtDNA Inversions and Aging

PLoS One
PMCID: 3775743
PMID: 24069185
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0073318

[…] We analyzed the correlation between mtDNA IRs and lifespans for all animal species (a total of 529) that had both mitochondrial genome reference sequences in NCBI and lifespan information in AnAge database as of March 1, 2012. We used our algorithm, RollingRepeat, to accurately count repeats of all lengths. For any repeat between two genomic positions, RollingRepeat extends it to the lon […]


Computational biology for ageing

PMCID: 3001313
PMID: 21115530
DOI: 10.1098/rstb.2010.0286

[…] ing databases that aim to collect and disseminate the data are shown in figures  and .One example is the Human Ageing Genomic Resources (HAGR) [] database that consists of two subsections, GenAge and AnAge. The former collects genes associated with changes in the ageing phenotype or longevity in model organisms and, at the time of writing (build 14), provided 789 such genes as well as 261 human or […]
