The objectives of Tamborine Mountain Natural History Association Inc. (TMNHA) and the website is to share natural history and biodiversity knowledge and experiences. The history on developing the TMNHA website system with a database function was to provide opportunities for TMNHA in wide ranging data collection and display. Some knowledge may have restricted access for various reasons.
YOU CAN ACCESS THE CURRENT DATABASE at this LINK or by the sub menu item "Current Database Link".
Website Administrators can access the new Database in development by the sub-menu above only appearing on their logon.
Tamborine Mountain Data Collection
Please note that this description has been compiled from a number of persons integral to its development and from material written by them.
Biodiversity data has been collected over a long history of various contributors, which includes
- Very old records donated to TMNHA
- TMNHA members developing and expanding that donated data for printed materials
- TMNHA members collecting observations through organised bird and nature walks (on and off the mountain) and member's personal observations
- Tamborine Mountain Landcare Inc (TML) was later formed and had members who were also or had been TMNHA members. TML arrange scientific surveys of specific sites to identify and monitor plants and animals at those sites. Its members have also contributed some personal observations.
- Past and continuing data collected by persons unconnected with TMNHA or TML.
- Firstly to create a web database system fully integrated with other TMNHA website systems for TMNHA to collect and display natural history information.
- Secondly to be a system to easily integrate the information (such as bird group data ) that has already been largely developed by and for TMNHA use through recording in the Biodat clipper system.
- TMNHA management agrees that contribution and access to this information should be available to TML and local Councils. Reasonable systems may be set-up if needed for them to use the TMNHA system.
