Sampling Methods
Study ExtentDigitization of the Odonata, Trichoptera and Ephemeroptera from the Ouellet-Robert entomological collection (QMOR).
Sampling DescriptionAll data are manually digitized as text from specimen labels. No images were taken.
Quality ControlNo legacy data were present, so all data were entered using controlled vocabularies where relevant. All fields have been checked for inconsistencies.
Step Description 1Examine specimen and any attached/included labels.
Step Description 2Create new record in collection database and populate fields with the information on the specimen label. Use controlled vocabularies where relevant. Determinations are recorded in a related table (included in this dataset as http://rs.gbif.org/extension/dwc/identification.xml), as are groups of individuals (e.g. 2 males, 1 female).
Step Description 3Attach the newly generated specimen number to the physical specimen.
