Occurrence data for priority CWR of the SADC region uri icon


  • This dataset was compiled from existing sources with the purpose of planning conservation actions for 110 of the 113 prioritised CWR of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. No occurrence data was collated for three priority CWR. The data sources included: Maxted et al. (2004) (Vigna); Nur Fatihah et al. (2012)'s (Psophocarpus); Bioversity Collecting Missions database 1.2; GBIF (www.gbif.org); and the 'Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change' project database (version September 2015) (http://www.cwrdiversity.org/checklist/cwr-occurrences.php). The data were merged and standardized using the occurrence data collation template developed in the SADC Crop Wild Relatives project (http://www.cropwildrelatives.org/sadc-cwr-project/). The dataset here published includes a total of 11,092 occurrence records from gene banks, herbaria, field observations and biodiversity databases. It resulted from a data quality assessment using GEOQUAL of the CAPFITOGEN package (http://www.capfitogen.net/) applied to a larger dataset
