Descrição

The department of Plant and Ecological Studies had existed as a unit from establishment of the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Nigeria, Calabar campus in 1973/1974 academic session. The Plant and Ecological Studies programme continued as a unit within the Department of Biological Sciences with the establishment of the University of Calabaron October 1, 1975. In April 2001, the Department of Biological Sciences was split into four autonomous departments, Plant and Ecological Studies, Genetics and Biotechnology, Microbiology and Zoology/Environmental Biology. The Plant and Ecological Studies programme is designed to achieve excellence in research and training in all activities relating to the use of plants with special focus on the following fields: Phytopathology (Mycology/Plant Virology option), Plant Physiology/Plant Biochemistry, Plant Ecology, Plant Taxonomy, and Ethnobotany. The department currently has an herbarium, which was established during the 1979/1980 Academic session to aid plant identification for students and researchers within the university community and its environs. It has since then, been in existence with a reasonable collection of plant species and number of supporting staff headed by a curator. The present dataset holds 101 records of preserved specimens collected between 1980 and 2013. It has 100 species in 13 families and 82 genera.

Dados Sobre o Projeto

National partner’s requirements will be identified and addressed in the implementation process of mentoring the Nigerian Node. NgBIF will consider the national strategy to strengthen biological collections. The mentoring process was carried out by Benin and France GBIF with some Nigerian partners of the project, in order to learn more about governance issues, data publishing processes in the international GBIF platform, and incentives to the publisher. The mentoring processes evaluated contents to be addressed during meetings, the focus and themes, as well as other logistical matters. The National participants were prepared in such a way that the Nigerian Node will replicate these activities and exercises with other national actors, so that the Nigerian Node will have a sustainable team for the Node.In the BID project, the Nigerian node was established but the node still required the experiences of another node to mentor us for smooth running of the NgBIF. Furthermore, the Capacity self-assessments for national biodiversity information facilities clearly indicated that the node lacked the knowledge and capacity to operate fully in bringing national data holders in managing their data, promote incentives for data publishing, lacked feedback mechanism in place for assessment. The strategy for the node and biodiversity information is still without stable funding. BID project is working with partners from South West, South East and North Central without website to support user community,while this project was expanded to a wider region, the North West – Zaria (Ahmadu Bello University).

Título Nigeria Node Mentoring
Identificador CESP2018_012
Financiamento The project was funded by European Union and GBIF.
Descrição da Área de Estudo The current project was extended to a wider audience and trainings were replicated in Southern and Northern Nigeria. These were held at the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, Ibadan, Southwestern Nigeria, and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in the North West. Participants were drawn from the six eco-geographical zones across Nigeria. Records mobilized for the training were those of herbarium collections and animal data.
Descrição do 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 for the current project was to ensure the continued availability of Nigeria's biodiversity data via GBIF platform.
