Data from the NATRICINE project led by V.Deepak (, funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action.

These data have been used in several papers:

  1. Deepak. V., Cooper, N., Poyarkov, N.A., Kraus, F., Burin, G., Das,A., Snarayanan, S., Streicher, J.W., Smith, S.J., & Gower, D.J. 2021. Multilocus phylogeny, natural-history traits, and classification of natricine (Serpentes: Natricinae) snakes. Zoological Journal of the Linnaean Society. 2021, zlab099. DOI: 10.1093/zlab099.
  2. Deepak. V., Gower, D.J. & Cooper, N. 2022. Diet and habit explain head-shape convergences in natricine snakes. TBC.

More details can be found at,, and in the papers themselves.

We also include the full natural history dataset collected for this project, along with the references used to build it (Natricine-natural-history-data.csv and Natricine-natural-history-data-references.csv), used in both papers.
