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: NOAA ESI Guidelines

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: NOAA ESI Guidelines
100
CONC Unknown The field CONC refers to "concentration," abundance, or density values, and may contain counts of individuals for each species present at a particular site, or a term that describes relative abundance of birds at a particular site. The field may contain counts or a range of counts of individuals, pairs, or nests (XX-XX BIRDS or PAIRS or NESTS). In cases where no quantitative count information was available, the field may contain descriptive terms such as "HIGH" or "LOW", or a concentration approximation, such as "100s". If no concentration information was available from any source, the field was populated with "-". Counts were derived from a variety of surveys and may range in date (see Lineage), but were mostly conducted from 2001-2009. | Description Source: NOAA ESI Guidelines

SEASON_ID NUMBER Numeric identifier for the unique monthly presence and life history characteristics of each species at a given location. | Description Source: NOAA ESI Guidelines

G_SOURCE NUMBER Geographic source identifier that links records in the BIORES data table to records in the SOURCES data table. | Description Source: NOAA ESI Guidelines
100
S_SOURCE NUMBER Seasonality source identifier that links records in the BIORES data table to records in the SOURCES data table. | Description Source: NOAA ESI Guidelines
