These data were collected as part of a bi-annual biomonitoring program implemented by the Forestry Development Authority of Liberia in collaboration with Fauna & Flora International in Sapo National Park, Liberia. Data are collected along a system of 90 predefined 2 km each line transects across the park.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 4 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
