The BIO herbarium belongs to the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and it is located in the Campus of Leioa (Bizkaia, Spain). It was created in 1981 and it is managed by the Department of Plant Biology and Ecology (Botany section). The BIO herbarium houses two main groups of organisms, namely vascular plants (BIO) and fungi (BIO-Fungi). This BIO-Fungi dataset publishes about 9000 occurrences of fungi (mainly Basidiomycota) from the Basque Country (Spain). The records are accompanied by a voucher specimen.
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 8,607 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.

The vast majority of the specimens come from Spain; however, there are also specimens from neighbouring countries, such as France, Portugal and Morocco. In addition, we have some specimens, although in smaller quantities, from Scandinavian countries and Mexico, due to specific work carried out in those territories (although not available online for the moment).
