The EURING Databank Index

The EURING databank (EDB) holds a high proportion of the ringing recovery data that have been gathered by bird ringing schemes throughout Europe. The databank is hosted by the British Trust for Ornithology. The data are computerised according to standard protocols that are used by all EURING schemes. This index provides a summary of the information that is held in the EDB, including maps of the distributions of ringing and recovery locations.

EURING is very keen to promote more analyses of these data and welcomes applications to analyse particular data sets. Information on how to apply to analyse recovery data held in the EURING databank is available here. Information about the types of data that are included in the EURING databank (EDB) and about how the index was constructed maybe found here.

A list of published research that made use of EDB data can be found here.

Contents of the EDB Index

The EDB index is currently being revised - new material will be added as it becomes available. Currently we have three main tables as follows:

Number of encounter records by Ringing Scheme and record type on 6 February 2018

Number of encounter records by species and record type on 6 February 2018

PDF icon EDB_contents_species_by_record_type_20180206.pdf

Number of encounter records by species and decade on 6 February 2018

PDF icon EDB_contents_species_by_decade_20180206.pdf
