3.4. MAPS 1998 protocol

The 1998 field season marked the first use of the ten micro-aging fields that appear just before “Wing” on the banding sheet. Before 1998, these fields were missing from the banding sheet.

Sets in the pre-1998 format were still showing up in 2005. Should any show up now, they will be entered in the 1998 format, with ten spaces entered for the micro-aging fields.
