The University has accomplished incomparable goals in academic and research within its short time of birth. The Department of zoology where the specimens were recorded is one of the leading departments in the institution, it housed over 3,500 animal specimens ranging from the domestics to the wild species including insects, birds, reptiles, mammals etc. The source of many of these animal specimens include field survey into the university zoological garden, established conservation institutions in Jos, the Plateau state capital which includes Pandam wildlife Park/Lake and the long established Jos wildlife park. In addition, collections is in progress by Practical students, project students and staff of the department and other sister department of the University like the Department of Forestry and Wildlife and the Department of Animal science of the Faculty of Agriculture Shabu- Lafia campus. The data set has 54 records of animal collections which consist of 42 Families, 47 Genera and 49 Species collected between 1985-2018.

Données sur le projet

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.
