Sampling Methods

Studies of the species composition and number of birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles were conducted on routes (from 500 m to 12 km) and in the survey of registered areas (from 1 ar to 5000 ha).

Study Extent The dataset is of particular importance as it contains registrations of various fauna representatives registered during field surveys undertaken in February 2018 by Stanislav Viter on the territories, where biodiversity is poorly studied.
Quality Control The author is fully responsible for the quality of data provided within the dataset.
