Year:

Quarter: 
July - September
Protocol Activities: 

Climate monitoring continued as planned.

Protocol Problems: 

Inconsistencies were found in the BCI camera-trap data as provided by the online database. For example, some photos had African mammal species associated to them. Since it is not even possible to assign non-native species to photos in deskTEAM, this mismatching apparently happened after submission of the data files to the TEAM database, i.e. in the data processing. Rather than manually correcting individual instances in which these inconsistencies were apparent, the problem was solved by having the TEAM support unit re-process the original datafile.

Suggestions: 

The TEAM TV data could be quickly checked for processing errors by checking the datasets for non-native species.
