Capture of Primary Biodiversity Data for West African Plants

Última versión Publicado por Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria en Jan 11, 2019 Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria

Forest Herbarium Ibadan (FHI) is a repository of about 101000 specimens of vascular plants and cryptograms mainly from all parts of Nigeria and some other parts of the world. Forest Herbarium Ibadan is located in Taxonomy Section of the Department of Forest Conservation and Protection, Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, Ibadan. The sources of FHI materials are from Taxonomic activities such as collections during routine field exploration, floristic projects and inventories. Other sources include specimens exchange from other herbaria (Nationally and Internationally), voucher specimens from scientists and research students and donations from private collectors. The objectives of FHI are to render Taxonomic services (Identification, Classification and Nomenclature), conserve and monitor the distribution and status of the flora of Nigeria through plant collection and botanical exploration of her regions and to encourage proper documentation of the flora. Today, FHI plays the role of a National herbarium in Nigeria. The present dataset hold about 17105 records of angiosperms cutting across 34 families in 415 genera and 1432 species with 18750 images linked to the data. These specimens were collected between 1842-2017.

Datos del Proyecto

Limited access to West African biodiversity data is a crucial barrier to progress on a wide variety of challenges in biological research, decision making, policy setting, and many other facets of natural resources-related activities. An estimated 10,000,000 primary biodiversity records for plants from West African countries exist in herbaria worldwide, yet only a small portion of those records is accessible via existing data portals. Biodiversity research, management, and conservation are therefore operating based on a only small subset of existing information. The goal of this project is to daylight a rich, high-quality data set describing the distribution of species of plants across West Africa to the scientific and decision-making communities. Data from five West African herbaria and six major herbaria in Europe and North America will be digitized and published by owner institutions. Through this work, caretakers of specimens at institutions on three continents will be linked with scientists from the West African region with intense interest in the data to achieve cost-effective solutions to data needs. This project will generate a valuable regional scientific resource, and provide an exportable model of data digitization for other regions and taxa for which the bulk of existing biodiversity data remain inaccessible and unavailable to science. Most importantly, this project is a novel prototype of a solution to the challenge of data access in which African scientists lead the capture of information relevant to their regions.
