The Canary Database contains studies in the biomedical literature that explore the use of wildlife, domestic, and companion animals as “sentinels” for the effects of chemical, biological, and physical hazards in the environment that may be a risk to human health.
The Canary Database allows you to locate and visualize patterns in sentinel studies according to:

* Exposures
* Disease outcomes (animal)
* Species (and types)
* Study methodologies
* Authors
* Journals
* Locations

You can browse the database by year, journal, or by methodology.
