  • To calibrate methods used in different working groups and agree on standardised methodology for comparability and later use of data for modelling and genetic analyses
  • To standardise GOS (goodness of sampling) tests for field work
  • To compile available land use data
  • To train new Post-Docs & PhD students on standard techniques
