How do I contribute?
2. Contributing data
Thank you for wanting to contribute your data to the IRBAS database!
2a. How to get started
Once you are registered as an IRBAS database user (Login), contribution simply involves the use of data-entry templates (tab-delimited spreadsheets) which follow a database-compatible format.
There are three types of template: Site, Fauna and Environment. The type of template you use depends on the nature of the data you wish to insert:
- Site: to insert geo-locational data and general summary information about the sampling sites and locations
- Fauna: to insert taxonomical inventories of fauna and/or flora along with the sampling methods
- Environment: physical and chemical data and sampling methods
