EMAN recommends that the groups who are involved in monitoring activities should coordinate their efforts through the use of standard protocols in study design, sampling procedures, sample and data analysis and reporting methods. This ensures that information gathered in Canada is as useful as possible at the national and international scale.
Working with its partners, EMAN both endorses standard protocols and develops them in areas where either consolidation is required, or no work has been done.
