This manual describes the functionalities of the Mangal.jl package, to query data from species interaction networks. This package is a wrapper around the new API for the mangal ecological interactions database. It uses Julia 1.1 to provide a programmatic interface to read the data. Development of this package and the underlying database was funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
