Is there a large database of phenotypic traits of various species? Probably most will focus on morphology, but behavior, diet, habitat would also be interesting.

I am looking for as much variety as possible (mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, worms, bacteria, plants, fungi), and a good amount (ideally all species, but at least 1000+).

There are several resources around, but you will have to do some / a lot of editing and formatting to get exactly what you want. Surprisingly, all found by searching Taxonomic trait database.

R package traits

LEDA Traitbase

TRY database

EPA Freshwater Biological Traits Database

Marine Species Traits

A trait database for marine copepods

Coral Trait Database

Most of these seem too focused on a particular group, but looking through traits I found EOL's TraitBank, which was what I wanted. Thanks! Strangely enough my search engine returned nothing useful for the same query.
