This report presents the results of DiSSCo-Flanders WP2 task 2.1 ‘Detailed inventory of the collections’. Building on previous work done as part of the SYNTHESYS+ project, a survey was set up aimed at obtaining high level information on the natural science collections held by the 14 members of the DiSSCo-Flanders consortium. This information consists of quantitative data on the overall size of the collections, as well as size by taxonomic groups, preservation types, stratigraphic age, geographic region, and level of digitization.

This report focuses primarily on the survey design.
