Between September and November 2012, non-invasive surveys were conducted by dividing the national park into survey blocks based on watershed boundaries. Search transects followed mainly along trails in each block to collect and store fresh bear scats in 95% ethanol as described in Bellemain et al. 2007. Spatial locations of all scat samples were recorded by a handheld GPS. Camera trapping was conducted simultaneously at 116 stations along the same trails. The procedure is described in details in Bischof et al. 2014.
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 45 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.
