Small Mammal Sampling App

Small mammals are a vital component of many ecosystems, not only as food for bigger animals, but also as the disperser of plant seeds. That’s why it’s important to sample and document the abundance of small mammals and gather data on population characteristics such as estimated age, sex, reproductive condition, weight, etc. Use this Small Mammal Sampling App to keep an up-to-date record of the survey location and any relevant measurements, including photos and video or audio. This customizable form can be used with or without an internet connection.
