This collection contains roughly 2,000 samples of seeds, which usually have an associated reference specimen in the Cormophyta collection. The samples mostly come from plant communities in the mountains and highlands of Catalonia. The properly dried seeds are stored in plastic envelopes with the respective label and then put in order by family. A large number of the samples have been characterized morphologically and functionally and detailed images have been taken.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 1,667 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
