Biometric measurements, ptilochronology and fluctuating asymmetry of house sparrows from urban and rural areas in France

The database consists of biometric measurements (body mass, tarsus length, wing length, bill height and bill length) and scores of feather moulting stage collected during field sampling and body mass obtained from experiment. Data on ptilochronology were yielded through manual measurement of feather growth bar width. Fluctuating asymmetry data consist of two times measurements of feather length which were used to estimate fluctuating asymmetry.
