Survey/Project Name: Bird Atlas Data to 1981 (BirdLife Australia) - Third Party Managed
Abstract: BirdLife Australia extract for Historic Bird Atlas Data up until 1981. Managed by BirdLife. Stored as Third Party data by DEW. Extract received > 10 years ago. Data available internally or via
Start Date: 01/01/1800      End Date: 31/12/1981
Survey Type: Vertebrates only
Study Area Description: *** No study area description recorded
         Vegetation: *** No vegetation survey objectives recorded
         Fauna: Data from RAOU (now Birds Australia) from 1980 Bird Atlas. Records dated from 1699 (errors) to December 1981. Current dataset stored as an Oracle table RA_RABIRDSP The plan is to load it onto Oracle (probably OP) during 2006 and then delete the RA table in Oracle. Birds Australia store this dataset seperately to their current Atlas (1996-2005) and suggest there have been little if any edits and that we may as well stick with the dump we have.
         Vegetation: *** No vegetation methodology recorded
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded
