Cross River National Park, covers an area of about 4,000sq. km of primary tropical moist rainforest ecosystem in the south and central parts, and montane mosaic on the Obudu Plateau. It is an important ecological gene-pool containing one of the oldest rainforest in Africa. It lies in the Guineo-Congolian rainforest refugia with close canopy and scattered emergent trees which reach a height of between 40 and 50 metres. The vegetation is studied to have evolved over 60 million years. On account of its critical conservation status it has been designated as one of the 25 United Nations biodiversity hotspots in the world. Cross River National Park have two distinct, non-contagious Divisions: Oban and Okwango. Inventory of wild mushrooms occurring in the park (Oban Hills Division) was carried out between the months of April to September in 2015 and 2016 respectively. This dataset contains the results of the inventory: a total of 79 species of mushroom belonging to 54 genera and 36 families were identified.

The objective of this project is to initiate mobilization of biodiversity data from Nigerian data holders, custodians, and institutions, estimated to hold more than 700,000 data records related to plants and animals within protected areas and likewise invasive, threatened and endemic species. While educating biodiversity data stakeholders across Nigeria on the benefits of biodiversity data mobilization and sharing, the project will also disseminate and demonstrate best practices for digitizing natural history collections through training workshops and thereby mobilize biodiversity data from Nigeria. Project activities will be coordinated by Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN) and executed in collaboration with project partners at Nigeria National Park Service, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Nnadi Azikiwe University, Awka, Nasarawa State University, and University of Kansas. Through this project, previously undigitized data from herbarium/museum collections and species in the protected areas in each geo-ecological zone of Nigeria will be mobilized and shared through GBIF.org, complementing data that the Nigerian GBIF node is already mobilizing. In addition to helping policy makers prioritize conservation investments, the mobilized data will be used to identify potential habitats for threatened species, which in turn will aid park managers to focus long-term conservation efforts. The project is expected to increase capacity for biodiversity information management within the GBIF node in Nigeria.

|經費來源||The project was funded by European Union and GBIF. It was co funded by Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, Nigeria National Park Service, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Nnadi Azikiwe University Awka and Nasarawa State University.|
|研究區域描述||The project occurred in the six geoecological zones across Nigeria. The records mobilized are those of herbarium specimens, insect collections and animals in parks and protected areas across Nigeria.|
|研究設計描述||In the research design, specimens were digitized directly into Darwin Core spreadsheet by project team. The data cleaning was done using OpenRefine software. In the process of digitization, Google Maps (GPS finder) was used for Georeferencing of localities on specimen’s records. Validation of taxonomic records was done using Global Names Resolver and other online resources. The goal of the research design is digitization of over 10000 biodiversity data and information on threatened species, invasive alien species and species in the protected areas in each geoecological zone in Nigeria|
