MICA - Muskrat and coypu camera trap observations in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany
Dernière version Publié par Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) le 4 août 2021 Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO)

MICA - Muskrat and coypu camera trap observations in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany is an occurrence dataset published by the Research Institute of Nature and Forest (INBO). It is part of the LIFE project MICA, in which innovative techniques are tested for a more efficient control of muskrat and coypu populations, both invasive species. The dataset contains camera trap observations of muskrat and coypu, as well as many other observed species. The collected data are managed and annotated in Agouti (https://agouti.eu) and published in Camtrap DP format on Zenodo (Cartuyvels et al. 2021, https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4893243). Here the dataset is published as a standardized Darwin Core Archive containing only the animal observations and includes for each occurrence record an occurrenceID, date, location, the number of recorded individuals, and scientific name (in the occurrence core) and all associated camera trap images (in the multimedia extension). Issues with the dataset can be reported at https://github.com/inbo/mica-occurrences/issues

Generalized and/or withheld information: to prevent camera trap theft, coordinates are rounded to 3 decimals (111m).

Données sur le projet

Invasive alien species such as the coypu and muskrat pose a major threat to biodiversity and cost millions of euros annually. By feeding on rushes and reeds, these animals cause serious damage to the environment in which they live and endangered species suffer from habitat loss. The disappearance of reeds and digging in dikes represents a safety risk for humans in the lowland areas. With the LIFE project MICA (https://lifemica.eu/), the partners from the participating countries want to develop a transnational plan for the management of coypu and muskrat populations in Europe and aim to reduce their population. The objective of an effective population control of coypu and muskrat is to protect lowlands from flooding, to prevent crop damage and loss of biodiversity. The objective of the project is to serve as a pilot and demonstration project in which ‘best practices’ are tested and new techniques are developed for a more efficient control of muskrat and coypu populations. By involving organisations from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, the project also promotes international cooperation and knowledge exchange in the field of muskrat and coypu management.

Méthodes d'échantillonnage

A standard protocol was followed to choose the location for the traps. The setup of camera traps was standardised for water habitat. Subsequently, 33 camera traps were deployed in four locations in Flanders and one in Germany. Once a month images were collected from the camera traps and uploaded to Agouti. Project members scored the images in Agouti.

Etendue de l'étude Four locations in Flanders and one in Germany were sampled using 26 camera traps in Flanders and 7 in Germany. These camera traps were located in areas where the presence of muskrat and/or coypu was suspected. The camera traps are motion triggered and therefore also collected images of other animals found in these locations.
Contrôle qualité Data are collected using a predefined sampling protocol. All observations of muskrats, coypu, brown rats and European water voles are cross-validated by experienced project members.

Description des étapes de la méthode:

  1. Camera traps are deployed in the study area.
  2. Collected images are downloaded periodically and uploaded in the camera trap data management system Agouti.
  3. Project collaborators and volunteers annotate/identify the images in Agouti.
  4. Data are exported from Agouti in Camtrap DP format (https://tdwg.github.io/camtrap-dp/).
  5. Data are published in Camtrap DP format on Zenodo (Cartuyvels et al. 2021, https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4893243).
  6. Data are converted to Darwin Core (occurrence core and multimedia extension) using a generic conversion for camera trap data (https://github.com/tdwg/dwc-for-biologging/tree/master/derived/camtrap-dp) and further enhanced using an RMarkdown script (https://github.com/inbo/mica-occurrences). This conversion retains animal observations only (removing blanks, humans, camera setups).
  7. The resulting Darwin Core data files are uploaded to the INBO IPT and documented with metadata.
  8. The dataset is published and registered with GBIF.
