IUCN SSC A.P.E.S.  DATABASE

An information service for great ape conservation and research.

Introduction

The IUCN A.P.E.S (Ape, Populations, Environments, and Surveys) database is a unique repository that stores all survey data on ape populations. Its goal is to support great ape monitoring, research, and decision-making by compiling a wide range of information on the distribution and dynamics of great apes over time. The database has also begun to compile data on small apes and other primates.

The A.P.E.S Database is an initiative of the Section on Great Apes (SGA) of the IUCN SSC Primate Specialist Group. It is supported by numerous funding organizations, non-governmental and governmental organizations, and research institutions.

Central to the mission of the A.P.E.S. database are the following objectives:

  • Identification, compilation, and archival preservation of all existing data on ape population surveys.

  • Dissemination of this data to the ape conservation and research community.

  • Provide regular reports on the status and trends concerning ape populations, habitats, and the threats they encounter.

 

The A.P.E.S Database stores a wealth of information detailing the distribution, abundance, and demographics of ape populations across their habitats. This offers a comprehensive understanding of population trends and challenges. By analyzing habitat information and conservation evidence, the database plays a central role in storing, analyzing, and disseminating critical data. It enables conservationists to make informed decisions, prioritize efforts, and monitor the effectiveness of interventions, ultimately contributing to the survival of critically endangered species. It empowers researchers, conservationists, and policymakers with centralized data for making informed decisions regarding conservation priorities, strategies, and resource allocation. Moreover, the database actively encourages data sharing and collaboration, fostering a global community dedicated to ape conservation.

The A.P.E.S. Database also serves as a knowledge hub by disseminating information to the public. It raises awareness about conservation challenges and inspires collective action for the preservation of great apes.

The success of the A.P.E.S. database depends on the participation and support of the ape conservation and research community. Researchers, conservation practitioners, and NGOs are invited to contribute their data to this community initiative and to visit the A.P.E.S. website to ensure that their own survey data are listed in the repository.

Archived information in the database include field survey data (raw datasets including ape nest count data, nest decay data, behavioral data, presence/absence data, and camera trap data), various geospatial layers produced using data deposited in the A.P.E.S. database or spatial layers produced as secondary products from the raw data archived in the database, great ape literature digital library, taxa range maps, taxa abundance tables, etc.

On the right side of this page, visitors can navigate through the A.P.E.S. database and find information on data access and release policy, the process to request data from the database and contribute data to the database, and access the current report on the content of the A.P.E.S. repository.

Abundance tables

Welcome to the A.P.E.S. database section dedicated to abundance estimates of great apes and gibbons! Here, you will find a compilation of abundance estimates gathered from both published and unpublished literature, providing insights into the populations of these primates across various sites. These estimates are categorized into abundance classes, such as 100-300 or 300-500 individuals, giving you an idea of the population size of great apes and gibbons in different locations.

The term 'site' refers to a diverse range of areas, including protected and unprotected regions, logging or mining concessions, or any specific location where a survey has been conducted to assess ape populations. Please follow this link to explore the population estimates of 33 taxa of great and small apes at various sites within their habitats.

How can you contribute to the A.P.E.S Database?

How to share your field survey data with the APES database?

If you have recent or old ape survey data that you would like to archive in the A.P.E.S Database, please get in touch with the data manager at apes@iucnapesportal.org. He will be happy to receive your data.

The A.P.E.S Database is a valuable resource for the ape community, informing ape policy and supporting research and conservation initiatives. The A.P.E.S Database relies on the contribution of data from all members of the ape community. Therefore, the sharing of data by collectors is crucial for the continuation of the project. In strict respect of the A.P.E.S. data-use policy, archived data can be used by researchers and conservation practitioners for various purposes.

How to obtain data from the A.P.E.S. database?

Every person can obtain information from the A.P.E.S. database.

However, the survey data in A.P.E.S. database are not directly accessible to the public. All archived data remains the property of their owners and their permission must be required before their data can be shared with any third parties.

The main goal of the A.P.E.S. project is to facilitate information sharing among conservationists, field practitioners, scientists, and other stakeholders. Reusing data from the A.P.E.S. database will contribute to the advancement of ape research and conservation efforts.

If you are interested in obtaining any type of data from the A.P.E.S. database, such as field survey data, reports/publications, or spatial layers, please follow the steps below:

 

1. Fill out the 'A.P.E.S. Data request form' or send a request for survey data to the A.P.E.S. data manager (apes@iucnapesportal.org).

Please specify the datasets you are interested in.

2. Provide the name of the person, organization, or institution making the data request.

 

3. Include a brief description of your project, including its objectives, methodology, and expected outcomes.

 

4. The data manager will contact the owner(s) of the requested data to seek permission for sharing. Please be patient, as this process may take several days or weeks to receive feedback from the data owners.

Policy

To ensure the integrity of the A.P.E.S. database, it is essential that all policies regarding the contribution and distribution of ape survey data are completely transparent to all involved parties. The A.P.E.S. Data Access and Release Policy was formulated to regulate all legal and technical details of data contribution and exchange. It consists of four documents which were modeled after the African Elephant Database:

 

Database Access and Release Policy

This document summarizes and defines the general terms and policies of the database. Download PDF


A.P.E.S. Database Deposit Form

This form is to be completed by any party contributing data to the A.P.E.S. database. This form solicits contact information, information about the data set, and specifies any restrictions on access to these data from third parties. Download PDF (English) / Download PDF (French)


A.P.E.S. Database Data Request Document

Any party wishing to access original data sets in the A.P.E.S. database, must complete this form and also submit a formal research proposal. Each request will be considered by the Data Review Working Group of the A.P.E.S. database. Download PDF


A.P.E.S. Database Data Users Agreement

This agreement specifies the terms and stipulations of approved data access, relevant only to cases which have been reviewed by the Data Review Working Group. Download PDF


A.P.E.S. Data Template

In addition, this is the standardized A.P.E.S. data template that is used to store all survey data submitted to the A.P.E.S. Database. We do not expect data owners/contributors to arrange their data in this template before submission because of time limitations. Data owners can submit their data in whatever format they are (e.g., tabular, text, shapefile) and the A.P.E.S. Database Team will arrange them according to the A.P.E.S. Template:

Download Data Template (xlsx)

 

Our hope is that this policy makes the A.P.E.S. project as transparent as possible, thereby encouraging data owners to contribute survey data sets to this database. It is important to emphasize that the data contributor establishes the limits for access to their data set. Some individuals may wish to make data freely available to any request that has been approved by the Data Review Working Group, whereas others may wish to limit data use to the official reports generated by A.P.E.S.
