Topic: New vitality field added to the occurrence record
We have added the term 'vitality' to indicate whether the organism was alive or dead at the time of the occurrence. The term has been added to the list of available filters (click on the Customise filters button in the top left column, vitality is the last check box under the Occurrence header): https://records.nbnatlas.org/occurrence … %22dead%22
The term has been added to the Overview section on the occurrence record page: https://records.nbnatlas.org/occurrence … e8089e4f73
At the moment we don't have many records that are classified as dead. From now onwards I will use this term when formatting records for upload. We don't have a vocabulary for the term yet and we don't have a default of 'Alive', which perhaps we should? So the values are dead, alive and Not supplied. We could add 'Not reported' as a valid value.
