Small mammal data base

Small mammal database

Information systems have been developed that collates data about small mammal assemblages sampled over more than 20 study sites in China and Kyrgyzstan since 1994. The main goal was to secure data storage and accessibility, increase data life expectancy and allow overarching analyses and syntheses. It includes geographical location, trapping design and biometric data related to more than 2170 rodent, insectivore and lagomorph specimens (>60 taxa).
