Data submission forms for occurrence data

From GFBio Public Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

To facilitate data submission for scientists interested in depositing their project results, GFBio provides standard excel templates commonly used in the involved natural history collections to document records on either biological and environmental physical samples (voucher objects) along with associated data on geographical and temporal occurrence or on observational data without deposition of physical vouchers, which is often the case in the context of established long-term monitoring projects. The following selection of excel templates is appropriate for deposition of biological and environmental data files without physical objects (vouchers). Templates for biological and environmental samples together with data files can be found under Data submission forms for the deposit of biological and environmental samples.

Please note that these templates are just examples drawing a picture of the way various data sets were submitted to GFBio in the past. They can be used as a base and extended by further information you want to mention. If you cannot find a template matching your data, do not hesitate to continue your submission nevertheless, we can get in contact and find a way!
