Faunal Isotopes Database Webinar – October 30, 2020

Are you looking for somewhere to share your published stable isotope data on faunal remains? The Faunal Isotopes Database (FID) within the Neotoma Paleoecology Database offers a way to store and share data in a secure, accessible format.

Data entered into the FID are open access and there is no charge to either upload or retrieve data. They must have been published in a peer reviewed article or be currently in review.

The webinar will take place on Zoom, Friday October 30th, at 10AM-12PM, EST. Participation is free but you must register in advance in order to obtain a password to the event. Registration will be considered open until 12PM Thursday, October 29th.


10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Introduction and overview of the Faunal Isotopes Database, including its development, general functionality, and applications for research. This includes time for discussion and questions.

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Data entry process tutorial. Neotoma uses the program Tilia for data entry. We have developed an easy excel-based Tilia Template and Read Me available for download prior to the webinar. This will allow interested participants and future database users to enter their data using either the option of Tilia or the Tilia Template for transfer into Neotoma.
