Abstract

Social network analysis is an invaluable tool to understand the patterns, evolution, and consequences of sociality. Comparative studies over the spectrum of sociality across taxonomic groups are particularly valuable. Such studies however require quantitative information on social interactions across multiple species which is not easily available. We introduce the Animal Social Network Repository (ASNR) as the first multi-taxonomic repository that collates more than 650 social networks from 47 species, including those of mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, and insects. The repository was created by consolidating social network datasets from the literature on wild and captive animals into a consistent and easy-to-use network data format. The repository is archived at https://bansallab.github.io/asnr/. ASNR has tremendous research potential, including testing hypotheses in the fields of animal ecology, social behavior, epidemiology and evolutionary biology.
