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 is to secure data storage and accessibility, increase data life expectancy and allow overarching analyses and syntheses.

Geographical location, trapping design and biometric data related to more than 2000 rodent, insectivore and lagomorph specimens (>50 taxa) are available via a web interface. Table or HTML exports and data visualisation using customisable graphs are possible. It is also possible to display any kind of data using Google Earth. Work is still in progress to describe metadata.

Related to this database, a collection of small mammal skulls is maintained at the University of Franche-Comté, and is available worldwide for loan under conditions.
