Methodology

Quality control

Regular quality cycles were performed on the inserted data selected at random, starting at 5% revision rate, with increased adjustments on this rate in function of the error rate.

Method Steps

  1. Data cataloguing was originally done using Specify ver 6. The taxon authority file for mammals was downloaded from ITIS. The authority file for birds follows the IOC bird list.

Curational Units
