(Fields in blue represent changed fields - those in red represent the original data)
There have been many changes made to various samples due to new GPS readings and human errors. To see which labels have been changed, consult this list.
|Trap and locale information|
Each collection from a malaise trap should have a sample number listed on it, for example, M.149. It is recommended that instead of using the labels that may have arrived taped to the sample, you find the corresponding number in this file and print out new ones. Many errors such as elevation, coordinates, and collector have been corrected in this file. Rich text (RTF) format.
This file contains all of the information contained on the above file in spreadsheet form. Useful for searching for all of the samples from a certain park, date, etc. Excel format.
|Collaborators report form
These are the file formats you will use to send species information back to us. Use one format or another, not both, then email the file as an attachment. If you have specimens without a sample number, include that information in the body of the email.
|Three column list format
This format is convenient if you are dealing with a large number of small samples with many specimens of each species. For each species, a separate line is needed for every sample it occurs in. Examples are included in the file - delete these before you start entering in data.
|Table format (w/ abundance)
This format works best with a small number of large and diverse samples. This format uses a grid with sample number along the top and species name on the right, with number of samples filling the grid. Examples are included - delete these before you start entering in data.
|Normal list format
This format should be used when you have a large number of samples with only a few specimens from each. One line per species. For every time a species occurs in the sample, write the number on the line. This is shown in the example in the file, which you should replace with your own data.
|Normal list format (no abundance
Same as the above, only there is no need to repeat a sample number.
