This dataset provides information about 847 preserved specimens from 566 species and subspecies and 76 families of vascular plants. The specimens were collected in the PhD project of Medrano (1994), which assessed the vascular flora of La Demanda and Cameros mountain ranges (La Rioja, N Spain). An inventory was conducted based on fieldwork and taxa were identified. The dataset is a subset of the specimens collected in the project of Medrano, which reported a total of 1261 taxa.
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 847 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.

Method step description:
- Plant collection. Plant vouchers were selected and collected in the field.
- Identification to species or subspecies level. Identification was performed between 2003 and 2009 by L.M. Medrano using Flora europaea (Tutin et al. 1964-1980) and Flora iberica (Castroviejo et al. 1986-1993, volumes 1-4).
- Plant conservation. Specimens were dried and pressed for conservation using standard protocols. Vouchers were deposited in the herbarium of the University of Navarra.
- 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).
- Nomenclature was updated using Flora iberica (Castroviejo 1986-2015).
- Names of municipalities, localities and place names were updated according to Toponimia Oficial de Navarra (http://toponimianavarra.tracasa.es/).
- Localities were georeferenced using x- and y- UTM coordinates. Uncertainty was also assigned.
- 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).
- 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/).

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).
