Data zone

This part of the web site is devoted to collection of original data and their presentation. The core is centered on two sql databases, one with observations of birds and one with data on sites used by LWfG. These will then be connected with other databases, such as the Important Bird Area (IBA) database of BirdLife International and our own literature database. We will continue to add functionality and will gladly take any suggestions for improvements.

The observation database is devoted to collection of data on orignal wild birds, and will only show these data on the front/observations pages. However, there is a need to understand the population development and effects of the Swedish reintroduced population, so such data will also be added and tagged accordingly in the database and made available through the translocation page. As far as possible the observation data will be tagged according to which flyway / breeding population they belong, to facilitate better presentations and analyses.

The database contains at present the following amount of data:
