The Renfrew County Biotabase

The Renfrew County Biotabase is an on-line database that is recording the distribution and diversity of the flora and fauna across the County. This innovative and ambitious project has the support of many amateur and professional natural scientists who are providing and uploading data to the biotabase. We now want to know what species we have in Renfrew County and when and where they can be found.

The Renfrew County Biotabase, gives us a means for recording and sharing this information.

The Renfrew County Biotabase is a public participation project through which citizen scientists share field observations on an ongoing basis. Anyone can register and share data that has been kicking around in scribbles in your field guides or stored in databases on your computer.

Participation is easy. Registration is straightforward. Then you can access the database to submit and review your information. The site description tool allows you to locate your survey site on Google Map and automatically record its latitude and longitude. You can report multiple species, including the number of individuals of each, using the checklists provided.
