This dataset contains the results of the yearly summer camp of the Field Study Group (Dutch Mammal Society), organized from July 25th to August 5th 2006 in Galicica National Park, Macedonia. The mammals of the Galicica National Park and its surroundings were the main object of study, using various methods. Live traps were used to identify small mammals like shrews and mice. Data on bats was gathered with bat detectors and mistnets. Bat parasites and DNA material were collected from all bats captured and identified afterwards. Other mammal species were observed visually. While recording mammals, attention was given to insects (butterflies, dragonflies and grasshoppers), amphibians, reptiles and birds as well. Locations were recorded with GPS.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 318 records.
2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
