Flora Mycologica Iberica Project database
Version 1.3 published by CSIC-Real Jardín Botánico on 21 January 2016 CSIC-Real Jardín Botánico

The databases contains detailed information on several fungus groups. The information has been revised, and in many time compiled, by expert mycologist(s) working on the monographs for the Flora Mycologica Iberica project (FMI). Thus, the quality and currentness of the information here presented is excellent. Records comprise both collection and observational data. The geographical scope of the dataset is Iberian Peninsula (Continental Portugal and Spain) and Balearic

Taxonomic Coverage

Datases comprising distribution records of fungus species belonging to selected groups (Agaricomycetes, Dothideomycetes, Mycetozoa, Laboulbeniomycetes, Ustilaginomycetes and Acuatic hyphomycetes) found in the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands (Western Europe). Sources included literature, herbaria and field surveys.

Sampling Methods

These two data avenues are subjected to different methodologies. Data collation from literature references. Three procedures are defined in this area: 1) To Identify and obtain relevant publications. A set of explicit criteria to determine whether a publication was or not eligible to included into the database was defined. These were published by Pando (1991:11-13). The library of the Real Jardín Botánico-CSIC was the main source for literature. When an eligible publication was identified and not found in this library a copy was obtained by the usual procedures (library exchange, colleagues, etc) and deposited in the library. 2) Treated genus data entry. Genus names were extracted in a systematic way from the publications and entered into the database. Publications and genus names compiled until 1995 were published in three volumes of the "Cuadernos de Trabajo" series (Pando et al. 1990; Cardoso & Melo, 1992; Pando, 1996). At this point the database contained data from c. 5,000 publications, at the end of the project this gathered data pertaining to c. 10,000 publications. 3) Occurrence data entry Although different approaches were explored at the beginning of the project, a procedure in which occurrence records were entered targeting specific taxonomic groups, on the basis of the project's priorities and the schedule for the publication of the monographs was soon consolidated. A effort was made to record all information associated to each occurrence, following an stabilised schema, as described by Pando (1991). These works were mostly carried out by a small team of data entry technicians and supervisors, with the support of the Project's scientific team. Primary data produced and compiled as part of the research conducted within the projects, by researches with the project, were also incorporated into the database. These come from studied specimens held in herbaria or fields surveys carried out within the framework of the project. These data were in many publised cases as the "Bases Corológivcas series in "Cuadernos de Trabajo"

Study Extent The main source for the study was the literature collationand herharium revision for data on the selected fungal groups in the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic lsland. The information was complemented by targeted field campaigns on sites poorly known and of ecological or conservation relevance.
Quality Control Quality control and assurance comprises a number of procedures, references and tools along the data life cycle. these can be summarized as follows: A manual on what to capture and what not and hpw to capture the information was developed and published (Pando, 1991). International standards approved or endorsed by the "Biodiversity Information Standards/TDWG). Specifically the following were used Brummitt & Powell (1992), Lawrence & al. (1968), Staflew & Cowan (1976-1988). Additionally, the following works were use a reference for taxonomic names:Farr& al. (1979, 1986), Hawksworth & al. (1983), Saccardo (1882-1972) The dbase management system (Pando & al., 2004), had many of these standards build-in as dictionaries and controlled vocabularies Newly entered records were checked against the actual publications by the supervisors A final check was done by the "Bases Corológicas" authors and editors as part of the publication process. Dataset publication in the GBIF network include data transformation to comply with the Darwin Core specification (Wieczorek & al., 2012) and further validation procedures (geographic coordinate format, coordinates within country/provincial boundaries, absence of ASCII anomalous characters in the dataset) using DARWIN_TEST (v3.3) software (Ortega-Maqueda and Pando 2008).

Additional Metadata
Purpose This dataset was conceived to serve two purposes: 1. To gather the available information on Iberian fungi as published on the scientific literature, to establish a baseline for the project and provide basic information upon which to elaborate the project's monographs. 2. To incorporate the primary data produced and compiled during the project to the previously available information, and thus providing updated and verified data on Iberian fungi. These data were gathered or verified by professional researches, many of whom also authored the project's monographs (see Bibliography). Data primary data added in this way mostly came from studied herbarium specimens and field campaigns. Targeted field surveys on sites poorly known and of ecological or conservation relevance were carried out within the framework of the project. The primary data were also made available as publication in the "Cuadernos de Trabajo de Flora Micologica" series (see Bibliography).
