Data collection template: We will be working on this during the Vectobite 2017 meeting.
Data submission instructions:: Currently being developed.
VecDyn manual: The current development version of the database is based on the Global Population Dynamics Database (GPDD) which hosts the largest collection of animal and plant population data throughout the world, within nearly 5,000 time series. We in the process of developing our own user guide which will coincide with the official release of the VecDyn database. For the time being please refer to the GPDD user guide.
