The first steps in data entry are to define where the research was conducted, the source from which the data were extracted and
which kinds of mammals were studied. These attributes are known as the Location, Source and Taxon (Synonym).

Use links on the right to navigate through these attributes and how to enter them. Use links on the left to move to a separate section of the manual.

Note that data are not saved into YouTHERIA until the end of the data entry process, i.e. after Measurements have been entered and the final 'Insert' button is clicked. Navigating to other tabs on YouTHERIA, or using the forward and back buttons, is therefore likely to result in a loss of data. For this reason, miners may find it useful to open the manual in a separate browser window.
