“Ungulates”

· While the term “ungulates” generally means “hooved mammal,” it is not easy to pin down a widely

  accepted formal or informal definition, and it seems to be a designation that has been dropped from

  modern taxonomic systems. It includes, but is not limited to, the oders of artiodactyla and perriso-

  dactyla (see below).

"...a data management system and archive for camera trap research projects.  This cyber-tool is designed to not only be useful to scientists, but also to the citizen scientists who aid scientists in photo collection.  Camera trappers use our software to look at pictures, identify animals and upload them for review and archive at the Smithsonian. These data then help address important conservation-related questions.  The pictures provide a unique view into the secret world of wildlife."
