The dataset contains the results of the annual monitoring of the relative abundance of small mammals, which was carried out by zoologists of the Kharkiv Sanitary and Epidemiological Station in the period from 2000 to 2018. The fauna of micromammals was investigated in the vicinity of 117 settlements of the Kharkiv region. The capture of mammals was carried out in different types of oak forests, dry and floodplain meadows, riparian-aquatic vegetation, steppe areas, forest belts, gardens, fields and haystacks. During the study period, 14930 specimens of small mammals were caught, which belong to 16 species of mouse-like rodents and 4 species of shrews.
The data in this occurrence 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 2,069 records.
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.

The goal of the project is to mobilize occurrences of mammals from Ukraine. These occurrences would be used for development of the new European Mammal Mapping Atlas (EMMA). Comparing to the first edition of the EMMA, the new one will include all of Eastern Europe, and the lack of information from this large region may create an underrepresentation of species occurrences when compare Western and Eastern Europe.

The personnel involved in the project:
Dataset was created on the basis of the results of the annual monitoring of the relative abundance of small mammals, which was carried out by zoologists of the Kharkiv Sanitary and Epidemiological Station in the period from 2000 to 2018. The capture of small mammals was carried out by the method of trap-lines. Gero traps with a standard bait (a crust of bread and sunflower oil) were used for catching. The traps were placed at a distance of 5 m from each other in a line.
|Study Extent||Kharkiv region, NE Ukraine|
Method step description:
- Capture of small mammals using the trap line method.
- Handling of captured samples.
- Making entries in the field diary.
- Drawing up a spreadsheet.
