List of the specimens of the Vanuatu National Herbarium (PVNH)

最新版本 由 Department of Forests (DoF) 發佈於 Sep 13, 2018 Department of Forests (DoF)

This dataset contains all the occurences data of this national database. Since the 1970's, Vanuatu managed a national herbarium. All the plants collection made in the country have to be stored in this herbarium. In 2012, the specimens have been registered in a local database, except the fungi and mosses collection.

Data Records

The data in this 出現紀錄 resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 17,920 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

In 1774, during the second voyage of Captain Cook, the first plant specimens of the New Hebrides were collected. Despite numerous expeditions during 250 years, Vanuatu has neither Flora nor taxonomic checklist. Only 70 plant species –out of about 1400 - are already listed by the IUCN. Plants or animals biodiversity data, on protected areas or on invasive species, are scattered and difficult to mobilize. Vanuatu is a country with a small population and has to collaborate with specialists from all around the world to study its biodiversity. Gathering biodiversity data at national level is strongly important: this is the only way to make them available for environmental policies. Currently, national structures wish to organize then to share some biodiversity data. VaBiDa project concerns organization and sharing of mainly three kind of data: specimen data from herbarium, invasive species data, already organized and partially stored in dedicated databases needing improvement, and data on protected areas. This project will also mobilize biodiversity data for IUCN status conservation assessments. Seven partners are engaged together in VaBiDA: 2 governmental agencies (the Department of Environmental Protection and Conservation (DEPC) and the Department of Forestry (DoF)), 3 of their partners already implied on these issues (NYBG from USA, UMR AMAP (IRD, CIRAD) from France and a consultant Laurence Ramon) and 2 new partners (GBIF France and Endemia -New Caledonia). Others local partners involved in biodiversity and conservation – governmental agencies or NGO- will participate to VaBiDa through meetings and trainings, especially for mobilizing new Vanuatu biodiversity data.
