Disturbed areas were more species rich than non-disturbed ones. Leguminosae, Gramineae and Compositae were also more frequent in disturbed areas.

Project Data

The recovery of vascular plants was assessed 6-7 years after a fire event occurred in 1994 in a mixed Quercus ilex subsp. ballota- Q. faginea forest. The forest is located in the south slope of sierra Costalera (Nazar, Navarra, northern Spain). Four area types were surveyed in the study: non-disturbed forest, cleared forest, burned forest and burned grassland. The most relevant families were Compositae, Gramineae, Leguminosae and Labiatae. Disturbed areas were more species rich than non-disturbed ones. Leguminosae, Gramineae and Compositae were also more frequent in disturbed areas.

Sampling Methods

Samples were collected between the years 1998 and 2001 in eight permanent plots of 10 m x 10 m with different treatments: non-disturbed forest, cleared forest, burned forest and burned grassland.

Study Extent The specimens were collected in the south slope of sierra Costalera (Nazar, Navarra, northern Spain).

Method step description:

  1. Plant collection. Plant vouchers were selected and collected in the field.
  2. Identification to species or subspecies level. Identification was performed between 2003 and 2009 by L. Alberdi and R.Y. Cavero using Flora europaea (Tutin et al. 1964-1980), Flora iberica (Castroviejo et al. 1986-2015) and Flora del País Vasco y territorios limítrofes (Aizpuru et al. 1999).
  3. Plant conservation. Specimens were dried and pressed for conservation using standard protocols. Vouchers were deposited in the herbarium of the University of Navarra.
  4. Numbering and digitization of vouchers. From 2012 to date, each specimen was labelled, with a unique collection number, and digitized, using HERBAR software (v3.7.1 Pando et al. 1994-2010).
  5. Nomenclature was updated using Flora iberica (Castroviejo 1986-2015).
  6. Names of municipalities, localities and place names were updated according to Toponimia Oficial de Navarra (http://toponimianavarra.tracasa.es/).
  7. Localities were georeferenced using x- and y- UTM coordinates. Uncertainty was also assigned.
  8. Coordinates, characters and format of dates were checked for possible mistakes using Darwin test software (v3.3, Ortega-Maqueda & Pando 2008). This software also allowed the data to fulfil the Darwin Core Standard (Wieczorek et al. 2012).
  9. Metadata were documented and the dataset was published in the GBIF data portal using the Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT v2.3.5) of GBIF.es (http://ipt.gbif.es/).

Additional Metadata

The origin of the PAMP Herbarium dates back to the arrival at the University of Navarra by Professor T.M. Losa España in 1964. One year later M.L. López Fernández began her doctoral thesis, maintaining her contributions to the herbarium uninterruptedly for several decades. Most of the material deposited in the herbarium comes from collections made by researchers from the Department of Environmental Biology (formerly Department of Botany) of the University of Navarra, as a result of theses and dissertations generally carried out in the territory of the Autonomous Community of Navarra (Spain). The herbarium store c. 100 000 sheets with dried specimens. The digitisation of the specimens has been done through the HERBAR v3.7.1 software (Pando et al., 1994-2010) and was supported by the Spanish Government (CGL2007-30978-E, CGL2009-08507-E and CGL2011-15056-E).
