University of Amsterdam (NL) - Páramo Vegetation Research, Bordoncillo - Nariño, 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 Bordoncillo dataset is generated from a part of a study from Orlando Rangel, done in 1987 about the paramo vegetation of the volcanos of the Nariño province. The vegetation in Bordoncillo groups shrubs with plant rosettes (frailejonal) of the Ugno myricoides-Espeletetium hartwegianae association. This is a small data set which provides information on the occurrence and location of 51 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.
Date range: Jan 1, 1987 - Jan 1, 1987
