Data Management using NEON Small Mammal Data

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

Undergraduate STEM students are graduating into professions that require them to manage and work with data at many points of a data management lifecycle. Within ecology, students are presented not only with many opportunities to collect data themselves but increasingly to access and use public data collected by others. This activity introduces the basic concept of data management from the field through to data analysis. The accompanying presentation materials mention the importance of considering long-term data storage and data analysis using public data.
