EGrowth: a global database of earthworm body growth curves

Jerome Mathieu

The EGrowth database contains 1073 growth curves of 51 species of earthworms, representing 16002 measures of body mass. It covers publications on earthworm body size from 1900 to 2016. The environmental conditions in which the growth curves were produced are also reported (e.g. temperature, pesticides).

The database is open access and can be explored directly from R:

# R code to type in console

if (!require('shiny ')) install.packages('shiny')

library(shiny)

runGitHub("EGrowth", "JeromeMathieuEcology")

The database can also be browsed from a graphical user interface. See :
