Description

This dataset gathers the data of the specimens present in the Zoological Collections of the University of Granada (CCZ-UGR) and coming from Sierra Nevada. As a result of the process of adaptation and improvement of the primary data, 10,005 records have been selected out of the 32,120 catalogued, corresponding to 55,292 specimens out of the 136,837 that are currently catalogued. These figures reveal the important representation of the fauna of the Sierra Nevada, approximately one third of the CCZ-UGR.

Data Records

Project Data

WP-1. BIOLOGICAL COLLECTIONS (digitalization of Herbarium and Zoological collections of UGR): The objective is to create a repository of high quality images of the specimens in different formats/elements (sheets, three-dimensional samples, microscopic images for microorganisms, pollen, etc.). This task would be transversal to many other actions of the project, according to the main objectives of LifeWatch ERIC program.

Study Area Description The geographical coverage of the dataset is the geographical area of Sierra Nevada according to the digital layer that establishes the limits, in accordance with the doctoral thesis of Yolanda Jiménez Olivencia (1990). These limits include 73 municipalities belonging to the provinces of Granada and Almería.

Sampling Methods

Direct sampling, pitfall and light traps

Study Extent The working area is the geographical area of Sierra Nevada, according to Jiménez Olivencia (1991)

Method step description:

  1. Screening of records from the Sierra Nevada geographic area.
  2. Mounting, identification and incorporation into the zoological collections of the specimens from the sampling carried out during the SmartEcomountains project.
  3. Create a database using the ELYSIA program (https://www.gbif.es/en/software/elysia/) that collects all the records from steps 1 and 2.
