The present data reports a number of angiosoerm species recorded in Permanent Sample Plot (PSP) 82 which is sited in Usonigbe Forest Reserve, Edo State, Nigeria. The plot is situated within longitude 6.6342° N and latitude 5.9304° E in the South-Southern zone of Nigeria. Predominant wind directions are southwest and northwest. Geological formation is the costal plane sand and this sand consists of red earth and form a relatively thick series. The herbs are poor and consist of the following species sparsely distributed over the area: Dracaena sp, Aframomum sp, Palisita barteri, salacia spp, palisota ambigua and Psychotria sciadephora. The natural high forest has three strata of trees, viz the emergent consisting of trees whose crowns show above the general level of the canopy. The characteristics of the forest are the presence of a large number of wood climbers (Leaves) and (b) the incidence of buttresses of plank roots. The tallest trees of the emergent storey range to 150ft or more in height. The canopy at about 100ft or more is closest. The lower storey itself is about 30 to 50ft high. The present dataset contains 150 angiosperm records.

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).

|經費來源||The project was funded by European Union and GBIF.|
|研究區域描述||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.|
|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 for the current project was to ensure the continued availability of Nigeria's biodiversity data via GBIF platform.|
