Once a species is studied, these type of questions should be relatively easy to answer, but not all of them are. In fact, usually researchers working with a species know all about it, but do not know any proper channel to share this information in a binary computer(&parsing)-friendly format. We encountered problems when looking for simple phenotypic information about some species. Thus we developed Traitpedia, a collaborative repository to gather many traits for an increasing number of species (currently 181 species).
You can query the entry of any species in the Traitpedia by using as query its TaxID, Species name or Common name.
