Nnamdi Azikiwe University Herbarium (NAUH), Is an institutional herbarium to Department of Botany, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, located in south eastern Nigeria, Precisely in Awka the capital city of Anambra State, the general herbarium is located within the building of the Departmental Laboratory which houses about 500 specimens of vascular, non-vascular plants and cryptogams, but still growing with each new collection. The sources of NAUH materials are from collections done in the field by students of Botany and relative Department whose interest in plant research often Drives them to bring along different plant materials for taxonomic identification after exploration on the field for suitable plant for research purposes. New plant are collected and preserved on both weekly and daily basis to serve the growing need of vast majority of plant researchers, in Eastern and Southern region of Nigeria, the main Purpose of NAUH is to Collect, Identify, Preserve and Document plant specimen for Academic research purposes, Voucher numbers are given in Alphabetic order to the Family in which the plant belongs, The dataset presently holds about 262 records of herbarium specimens collected between 2005 – 2016, consisting of 68 Families, 197 Genera and 237 Species.

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||n 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|
