BOTELLO, Francisco et al. Systematic images from camera-traps: a proposal of data card. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2007, vol.78, n.1, pp. 207-210. ISSN 1870-3453.

The main objective of biological collections is to accumulate biological data. The use of camera-traps for inventories and ecological studies of mammals has shown a noteworthy recent increase. However, the basic information associated with the images is not organized in a formal or systematic way, like the specimens of a scientific collection. Here, we propose a format to produce digital photosampling cards where the image of the photographed species is associated with the same basic information that is recorded for a traditional sample; in this way, they can be easily inorporated in scientific collections, thus documenting the available information for the sites that are sampled by this method.

Palabras llave : photosampling; camera-trap; scientific collection; biodiversity; mammals.
