Forest Herbarium Ibadan (FHI) is a repository of about 101000 specimens of vascular plants and cryptograms mainly from all parts of Nigeria and some other parts of the world. Forest Herbarium Ibadan is located in Taxonomy Section of the Department of Forest Conservation and Protection at the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, Ibadan. The sources of FHI materials are from Taxonomic activities such as collections during routine field exploration, flora projects and inventories. Other sources include specimens exchange from other herbaria (Nationally and Internationally), voucher specimen from scientists and research students and donations from private collectors. The objectives of FHI are to render Taxonomic services (Identification, Classification and Nomenclature), conserve and monitor the distribution and status of the flora of Nigeria through plant collection and botanical exploration of her regions and to encourage proper documentation of the flora. Today, FHI plays the role of a National herbarium in Nigeria. The dataset presently holds about 3187 records of sedges collected between 1906 – 2015, consisting of 32 Genera and 338 Species with at least 3130 images links.

Most of the sedges were collected from Nigeria and few from some other African countries, Asia, Europe, North and South America.

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|
