Best Data Management Practices Document Now Available Online

NBII Bird Conservation Node Manager Elizabeth Martín and Grant Ballard of Point Reyes Bird Observatory (PRBO) Conservation Science compiled a document on best practices and standards for data management that is now available online. The document, titled "Data Management Best Practices and Standards for Biodiversity Data Applicable to Bird Monitoring Data," provides general information from various sources and serves as a reference guide for the management of bird monitoring data. It was developed as part of the activities of the Database Management Team of the U.S. North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI) Monitoring Subcommittee, and was endorsed by the U.S. NABCI Committee at their January 2010 meeting. To access the document, please visit the NABCI Web site.
