The checklist of alien parrot species in Turkey is a species checklist dataset managed by the Gazi University. It was developed particularly for the Turkish parakeet census project (trpapagansayimlari.blogspot.com), and it includes newly introduced parrot species not covered elsewhere (yet). Here it is published as a standardized Darwin Core Archive and includes for each species: the scientific name, higher classification and stable taxon identifier (in the taxon core), the presence status, date of first collection and last observation (given as a year range in the event date) and degree of establishment of the species in Turkey in the distribution extension. Issues with the dataset can be reported at firstname.lastname@example.org

Study ExtentThis checklist was developed to fill gaps in the coverage of alien species in checklists, and it mostly comprises taxonomic categories and newly introduced species that are not covered elsewhere (yet).
SamplingData for this checklist are compiled by directly contacting citizens and scanning online databases (eBird and iNaturalist) and published document (articles and books).
Quality ControlSee step description.
- The source data for this standardized checklist is an Excel spreadsheet, maintained by locally by Esra Per
- This raw data file was reformatted to Darwin Core, which included the following steps:
- Create a taxon core file (http://rs.gbif.org/core/dwc_taxon.xml).
- Create a distribution extension file (http://rs.gbif.org/extension/gbif/1.0/distribution.xml).
- The resulting Darwin Core data files are uploaded to the INBO IPT and documented with metadata.
- The dataset is is published and registered with GBIF.
