Grazing database Flanders [De Begrazingsdatabank Vlaanderen]

Availability: Restricted
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

Description
The database contains observations of different large herbivore species, used for grazing management. more

The database contains observations of different large herbivore species, used for grazing management, in a wide range of extensively grazed nature reserves. Observations are time registrations of different kinds of behaviour (interaction with other individuals, sleeping, grazing,...) and habitat use, diet, track distance. These data are related to season, vegetation type, herbivore sex, animal condition, herd characteristics.
