Description

An insect section for wildlife conservation is domicile in Okomu National Park Research Center (ONPRC). The insect section is a repository of about 100 specimens of the class Arthropoda, including the Orders, Lepidoptera, Odonata, as well as a few Dipterans. All the specimens were collected from Okomu National Park, through routine forest research by research entomologists, field survey, as well as the Park’s internal research programmes. However, more collections, which have not been marked and identified, have been added to the insect repository by SIWES/IT students, insect researchers, private collection, and Park Rangers, making the volume of insect specimens in ONPRC to continue to grow regularly. The ultimate aim of ONPRC is to collect as much as possible, preserve, monitor the distribution and status of forest insects in Nigeria, especially those ones around the Protected and contiguous areas of the Park. The present data set 16 records of insects which consist of 15 species from 15 genera and 9 families collected in year 2017 and 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.

Identifiant BID-AF2017-0210-NAC
Financement 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.Co funding
Description du domaine d'étude / de recherche 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.
Description du design 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
