Data for the calculation of an indicator of the comprehensiveness of conservation of useful wild plants. uri icon

abstract

  • The datasets and code presented in this article are related to the research article entitled "Comprehensiveness of conservation of useful wild plants: an operational indicator for biodiversity and sustainable development targets"1. The indicator methodology includes five main steps, each requiring and producing data, which are fully described and available here. These data include: species taxonomy, uses, and general geographic information (dataset 1); species occurrence data (dataset 2); global administrative areas data (dataset 3); eco-geographic predictors used in species distribution modeling (dataset 4); a world map raster file (dataset 5); species spatial distribution modeling outputs (dataset 6); ecoregion spatial data used in conservation analyses (dataset 7); protected area spatial data used in conservation analyses (dataset 8); and countries, sub-regions, and regions classifications data (data set 9). These data are available at httpaidx.doLorg/10.17632/ 2txj4k32n12.1. In combination with the openly accessible methodology code (laitosaigithub.comiCIAT-DAPAJUsefiaPlanistIndi cator), these data facilitate indicator assessments and serve as a baseline against which future calculations of the indicator can be measured. The data can also contribute to other species distribution modeling, ecological research, and conservation analysis purposes. Published by Elsevier Inc.
