The EURODEER network of researchers recognize the importance of scientific collaborations at all levels. We are committed to create links, share knowledge and promote common initiatives with other projects that share the same vision on data sharing for movement ecology.
The first result of this activity is the EUROUNGULATES project, an "umbrella" initiative that covers different European ungulate species replicating the EURODEER approach developed for roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) to wild boar (Sus scrofa) and red deer (Cervus elaphus).
EURODEER project is in strict contact with other sharing platform/projects, in particular:
Notably, these collaborations were the basis for the organization of two summer schools (the second one in partnership with IRSAE):
- Next Generation Data Management in Movement Ecology (2012). Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, Berlin, Germany. November 03-07 2012
- Next Generation Data Management in Movement Ecology (2015). Fondazione Edmund Mach, San Michele all’Adige, Trento, Italy. July 1-10 2015
In addition to the summer schools and to the continuous exchange of ideas and technical expertise, this network of networks lead to the publications of two papers:
- Ferdinando Urbano, Francesca Cagnacci, Clément Calenge, Holger Dettki, Alison Cameron, and Markus Neteler. Wildlife tracking data management: a new vision. Philosophical transactions of the Royal Society B. 365(1550):2177–85, July 2010. doi:10.1098/rstb.2010.0081
- Hamish A. Campbell, Ferdinando Urbano, Sarah Davidson, Holger Dettki, and Francesca Cagnacci. A plea for standards in reporting data collected by animal-borne electronic devices. Animal Biotelemetry. 4: 1. doi:10.1186/s40317-015-0096-x.
and to a book published by Springer:
- Ferdinando Urbano, and Francesca Cagnacci (Eds). Spatial Database for GPS Wildlife Tracking Data. Springer International Publishing, Cham, 2014. ISBN 978-3-319-03742-4. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-03743-1.
The EURODEER projects and its members are open to partnerships that targets science and/or wildlife conservation and management. If you want to join the project or propose collaborations, you are very welcome to contact us!
