Non-lethal surveys of Bumble Bees (Bombus), Honey Bees (Apis mellifera) and Monarch Butterflies (Danaus plexippus) on powerline right-of-ways in central Vermont, USA were conducted at each site using 200 meter transects visited four times during July and August of 2021.
The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 162 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
