Field-based study with a single study area

Field-based study with multiple study areas

Study with linear study area (e.g., river, road)

Remote-sensing study - regional study area

Natural History Study (reporting on collection of specimens from different locations)

If the purpose of the paper is to describe the characteristics of a species using specimens collected from the field, provide separate georeferencing information for each specimen location. If the purpose of the paper is to describe the life history, habitat, or range of a described species, then provide a polygon or polyline that encompasses the observations. If the study organism is found in several disconnected areas, then provide polygon or polylines for each distinct area. Provide a single point defining the centroid of each area.

Examples

Laboratory study using materials collected in the field

Provide separate georeferencing information for: 1) each area where the study materials were collected, and 2) the location of the laboratory.

Examples

Laboratory study NOT using materials collected in the field

Provide geolocation information for the location of the laboratory. For laboratory studies that do not use (or report on) materials collected in the field, the location of the laboratory may need to be taken from the authors affiliations.
