As I will explain in this post, I am currently gathering spatial data of presence for all mammals in the Mediterranean ecoregion for my Master thesis. I am contacting a lot of different institutions such as NGOs, state boards, scientists. However, being myself very keen on tracking mammals, I am convinced that naturalists have large amounts of data. Please, find below a description of both my status and my project.
Any contribution to our study will of course be acknowledged in our subsequent report and expected paper. We will also develop a webpage on our website for data providers. Furthermore, we do not publish any row data and can establish official conventions if necessary. Unfortunately, we have a tight research agenda, which constrains us to close the data gathering to start the analyses by mid- to end-January.
I hope to hear from you soon!
