Estación Biológica Doñana - CSIC, Aves

Latest version published by Biological Station of Doñana (CSIC) on Nov 30, 2018 Biological Station of Doñana (CSIC)

The bird collections of the Estación Biológica de Doñana (EBD), as the other vertebrate collections, were mainly originated at the beginning and later consolidation of the Institute during the sixties and seventies. First of all, they are the result of the interest in comparative anatomy and biogeographic studies of the two first directors of the EBD Prof. JA Valverde and Prof. J Castroviejo. They promoted and led several biodiversity projects that were carried out world-wide and helped fulfil the necessity of reference systematic material, hardly accessible in Spain at that time. The bird collections are of outstanding scientific interest not only because of the volume of specimens housed in (more than 30.000) but also because of the areas represented in its high taxonomic diversity (about 1500 species belonging to 130 families) and finally, because it holds good series of unique species. The geographic areas covered by the collections are: Palaearctic (mainly Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Western Sahara), Aethiopic (Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Islands of the Gulf of Guinea, Angola, Gabon and Ehiopia) and Neotropics (Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Panama, Nicaragua, Mexico). Finally, of exceptional importance are the holdings of extremely rare species such as the Spanish Imperial eagle (Aquila adalberti), in a unique series in the world that gives a special character to the collections of the EBD. The dataset currently available on GBIF.ES is one part of the mammal collection, and include the following families: PODICIPEDIDAE, TINAMIDAE, GAVIIDAE, RHEIDAE, STRUTHIONIDAE, CASUARIIDAE, DROMAIIDAE, DIOMEDEIDAE, PROCELLARIIDAE, HYDROBATIDAE, PHAETHONTIDAE, SULIDAE, PHALACROCORACIDAE, ANHINGIDAE, ARDEIDAE, SCOPIDAE, CICONIIDAE, THRESKIORNITHIDAE, PHOENICOPTERIDAE, ANHIMIDAE, ANATIDAE, CATHARTIDAE, ACCIPITRIDAE.

Note: this dataset was previously orphaned. It has been rescued by ① extracting it from the GBIF.org index (see GBIF Download in External Data) and ② republishing it on this IPT data hosting centre as version 1.0.
