The concept behind this course is to take some next steps in combining the content and ideas of several previous BITC courses: data capture, data cleaning, data analysis, etc. The idea is to analyze a set of data sets in parallel as regards a series of questions of interest.
The GBIF node in Benin held its first meeting in April 2010, that resulted in the national herbarium of the country engaging to provide about 10000 records of digitalized primary data and metadata. Besides, surveys on biodiversity holders and users will be carried out until March 2011.
A shortlist of 20 plants for priority conservation in Benin has been drawn up, based on relatedness to crops used to sustain livelihoods in the country, using GBIF to help identify plant records from relevant genera.
This search result only covers the text content of the news and information pages of the GBIF portal.
