University of Amsterdam (NL) - Páramo Vegetation Research, Paramos "Guantiva -La Rusia", Colombia
The Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) from University of Amsterdam (UvA) has been working on the Paramos of Colombia since 1970, collecting information on different aspects of plant ecology. The dataset Paramos "Guantiva -La Rusia" is generated from the field data from professor Antoine Cleef (collected in one field campaign in 1973), as part of his PhD thesis (finished in 1981). The study provides information on the occurrence and location of 75 plant species from the Paramo in this area. For the purpose of the GBIF data-publishing, vegetation releve data were converted into species occurrence data.
Purpose 1: Data in TurboVeg Purpose 2: data converted to species occurrence. Data repatriation to Colombia to be used in actual research.
