Item Identification

Title: BIORES
Short Name: BIORES
Status: Completed
Abstract:

The data table BIORES contains both biological attribute data and items necessary for linking vector objects in the biological data layers via the BIO_LUT data table to other associated data tables. See the Browse_Graphic section for a link to the entity-relationship diagram, which describes the way this table relates to other attribute tables in the ESI data structure. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.

Data Attributes

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
RARNUM NUMBER An identifier that links records in the BIORES data table to records in the BIO_LUT data table or the flat format BIOFILE data table. | Description Source: NOAA
100
SPECIES_ID NUMBER Numeric identifier for each species that is unique within each element and refers to a nationwide master ESI species list maintained at NOAA. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
100
CONC Unknown The field CONC refers to "concentration," abundance, or density values. The field may contain counts of individuals (XX INDIV.) or a range of peak counts of individuals (XX-XX INDIV.). For sea otters, counts are by independents (juveniles over 6 months and adults) and pups (juveniles under 6 months). Sea otter abundance is displayed as follows: "XX INDEP/X PUPS". If no quantitative count data were available, the field may contain a descriptive term, such as "HIGH" or "MODERATE". If no concentration information was available from any source, the CONC field contains "-". Counts were derived from a variety of surveys and range in date. See the Lineage section for survey dates. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.

SEASON_ID NUMBER Numeric identifier for the unique monthly presence and life history characteristics of each species at a given location. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
