The checklist consists of species of Cetaceans (namely 1 Phocoenidae species and 2 Delphinidae species) from the fauna of Ukraine protected according to Agreement on the Conservation of Cetaceans of the Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea and contiguous Atlantic Area (ACCOBAMS). This agreement was ratificated by Ukraine on July 9th 2003 with its subsequent entry into force on January 1st 2004. Therefore, according to the documents accompanying the Agreement, these species should be under relevant protection on the territory of Ukraine.
The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 3 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
