Project Data

Biodiversity underpins the provision of food and water; it mitigates and provides resilience to climate change; it supports human health, and provides jobs in agriculture, fisheries, forestry and many other sectors. Many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include targets that reflect the need for biodiversity and healthy ecosystems to achieve the 2030 Agenda. Without effective measures to conserve biodiversity and use its components in a sustainable manner, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development would not be achievable. Biodiversity information is critical to achieve sustainable development, yet many West African countries lack necessary capacity to mobilize and develop information resources needed to guide conservation and sustainable use of biological resources. The overall goal of this project is to enhance capacity for biodiversity data mobilization and development of information products in support of sustainable development in West Africa. The project will involve four GBIF West African national nodes with mentorship from the US Node and UNEP-WCMC. Our project aligns closely to priority needs of all the GBIF national nodes, as well as the GBIF Capacity Enhancement Framework, and GBIF Implementation Plan 2017-2021. The measured impact of the project will include number of participants actively involved in biodiversity informatics activities, volume of research-grade data records via GBIF.org, as well as biodiversity information products developed.

Sampling Methods

A line transect was demarcated from withing the forest reserve. Data was collected using 50m x 50m plots which were demarcated at 200m interval. In all, ten (10) plots were sampled along two transets. Species were mostly of trees.

Study Extent The present study was carried out in a forested area within Ola-Oluwa local governemnt area of Osun state. The areas is situated on Latitude 7°47’N and Longitude 4°5’E, and covers a 52kmSq hilly terrain with deep gorges, with about 12% of the site already converted to teak and gmelina plantation. The site is currently composed of a mix of savanna and forest species, and occurs in the transitional equatorial climatic zone of West Africa.

Method step description:

  1. Data was collected using Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, and carefully checked for internal errors.
