Sound information management is a critical component of any primary production measurement program to avoid loss of valuable information over time. This chapter provides recommended protocols for managing primary production data, including data acquisition and design, quality assurance and control, metadata, and data archiving systems. By adhering to a set of standards like the ones presented here, production ecologists will assure that wide use of their data in scientific synthesis will be possible.

Keywords:   archive, quality assurance, quality control, metadata, data acquisition
