Outputs from the WILDCOMS network incude guidelines on best practice and harmonisation of operations that are common to partners' schemes and collaboration. In addition, an annual report was produced for each of the funded years of the WILDCOMS network.
WILDCOMS aim was to:
(i) review and describe existing practice;
(ii) recommend best practice;
(iii) quantify current sharing of samples, methods and data between schemes ;
(iv) recommend how collaboration could be increased and activities rationalised to eliminate duplication or overlap.
The guidelines are made available as downloadable documents. Please click on the links below:
