Database of Monitoring Results

The Working Group felt that it was at present not possible to establish a database of bat monitoring data because of too much variation in the kind of data currently available for incorporation and variation in expectations of how the database might be used.

Nevertheless, referring to the preamble of Resolution 2 of MoP 2, it was agreed that a register of monitoring activities, trends and availability of further information should be established and would largely meet the instruction of MoP 2. It was proposed that such a record, or metadatabase, of project activities could initially be established within EUROBATS.

A draft registration form for projects was presented. A draft questionnaire to assess information for a more detailed population monitoring database was also presented for reference and possible future use.

Having completed this work the group was dissolved. Dr. Jessamy Battersby (UK) offered to finalise the registration form and related matters while reviewing the monitoring methodologies.
