MGC Herbarium of University of Malaga (Spain): MGC-Briof dataset
Latest version published by University of Malaga on 30 November 2018 University of Malaga

El Herbario de la Universidad de Málaga (Herbario MGC) está constituido por cuatro colecciones biológicas. La colección de plantas vasculares (MGC Cormof) es la colección principal del herbario. La base de datos MGC-Briof tiene como objetivo la digitalización y publicación de los datos asociados con los más de 1.260 ejemplares depositados en la colección, de los cuales el 99,1% de las muestras se encuentran identificadas a nivel de especie. Desde 2011, los Servicios Centrales de Investigación (SCAI) de la Universidad de Málaga son responsables de mantener el herbario y sus respectivas bases de datos. La colección está digitalizada a través del programa Herbar v3.7.1 (F. Pando et al. 1996-2011), estando la información de los especímenes accesibles a través de la red de GBIF (http://www.gbif.org/dataset/96bfeedc-f762-11e1-a439-00145eb45e9a). La colección MGC-Briof alberga 88 familias, siendo Pottiaceae (15,6%), Brachytheciaceae (8,6 %) y Grimmiaceae (6,3 %) las mejor representadas. Se contabilizan 214 géneros, los cuales incluyen 491 especies o bien 515 taxones si atendemos a las categorías infraespecíficas. Los géneros más abundantes son Bryum (4,8 %), Racomitrium (3,2 %) y Fissidens (2,6 %). La mayoría de los pliegos proceden de la Península Ibérica y Canarias, predominantemente del sur de España (Andalucia= 47.2% de los especímenes), siento la provincia de Málaga la mejor representada con un 30%. La mayor incorporación de pliegos en la colección MGC-Briof se dio entre 1976 y 1986, años que reflejan la intensa actividad del Dr. Juan Guerra. El herbario MGC es uno de los herbarios de referencia para Flora Briofitica Iberica (Guerra 2006-). La revista Acta Botanica Malacitana (B. Cabezudo 1975-) (http://www.biolveg.uma.es/abm/abm.html) está estrechamente relacionada con el herbario MGC y periódicamente publica artículos que están basados en datos incluidos en su colección. The herbarium of University of Málaga (MGC Herbarium) is formed by four biological collections. The vascular plants collection (MGC-Cormof ) is the main collection of the herbarium. MGC-Briof dataset aims to digitize and publish data associated with over 1.260 specimens deposited in the collection, of which 99.1% of the specimens are identified at species level. Since 2011, the University of Malaga’s Central Research Service (SCAI) has been responsible for maintaining the herbarium and their datasets. The collection is digitized by Herbar v3.7.1 software (F. Pando et al. 1996-2011), making over specimens accessible through the GBIF network (http://www.gbif.org/dataset/96bfeedc-f762-11e1-a439-00145eb45e9a). MGC-Briof collection contain 88 families, Pottiaceae (15.6%), Brachytheciaceae (8.6 %) and Grimmiaceae (6.3 %) being the most important. There are 214 genera, which contain 491 species and 515 taxa (including infraspecific categories). Main genera in order of abundance are Bryum (4.8 %), Racomitrium (3.2 %) y Fissidens (2.6 %). Most of the sheets are from Iberian Peninsula, mainly Southern Spain (Andalusia= 47.2% of specimens), Malaga province being the most important with 30%. The higher sheet intake in this collection was since 1976 to 1986, main research period of PhD. Juan Guerra at University of Malaga. The journal Acta Botanica Malacitana (B. Cabezudo 1975-) (http://www.biolveg.uma.es/abm/abm.html) is closely associated with the MGC Herbarium and periodically publishes papers that are based on data included in its dataset.

Sampling Methods

The plants of this collection were mainly gathered by researchers of the Botany Area of the Department of Plant Biology at University of Malaga, as well as by members of the herbarium. A small component of the collection comes from exchanges or donations from other research centres or researchers.

Study Extent Most plants are from Iberian Peninsula, mainly Southern Spain (Andalusia), Malaga province being the most widely represented area, the aim being to cover the widest degree of plant biodiversity for this territory.
Quality Control Every specimen of the MGC-Briof collection has been identified by researchers of the Botany Area of the Department of Plant Biology at University of Malaga and by Juan Guerra, researcher of the Department of Plant Biology at University of Murcia. The dataset is analysed in search of digitalisation errors before uploading to the GBIF Portal. This check is carried out by the DarwinTest v3.2 tool (Ortega-Maqueda and Pando 2008), provided by the Spanish GBIF Node. This tool looks for mistakes in taxonomy, dates, geospatial information, collectors, identifiers, etc

Method step description:

  1. Before incorporating new plants in the herbarium, the steps described below are followed. First, the material is dried and put in an envelope (14.8 × 10.5 cm) which perfectly cover and protect the specimen. On each envelope, an identification label provides the following information: taxonomy, country, province, county, locality, georeference, date, ecology, collectors and determinations. To kill any insects contained in the sheets, they are frozen at -20 °C for 72 hours. Periodically, the herbarium room is fumigated. The specimens are kept in compact shelving cabinets and alphabetically arranged by families, genera and species.
