<p>This guide provides information and help how to
38
fill in the [% orgabbrev %] Data Registry Form. Some fields are required
39
and some fields are optional. A red asterisk (<b><font size=
40
"4" color="#ff0000">*</font></b>) indicates that a
41
field is required. A few fields are repeatable up to ten times.
42
Those are the data set originator names and keyword information.
43
Note that those repeatable fields are also optional, so you need to
44
fill in only as many of those as you need.</p>

<p>Example: Data were collected every year in summer and fall from
172
1967 to 1979. Trapping was conducted only in the fall from 1980 to
173
1988. For each specimen taken, data were recorded on species, date,
174
location, time, sex, and body measurements including total length,
175
length of tail, length of hind foot, length of ear, and body mass.
176
The purpose of the data was to index the population size of all
177
species present over a long time period.&nbsp;</p>
