PAMP-tracheo: Vascular plants in Ribera Occidental de Navarra (Spain). PhD project, L. Garde

Latest version published by University of Navarra – Department of Environmental Biology on Nov 30, 2018 University of Navarra – Department of Environmental Biology

This dataset provides information about 3496 preserved specimens of vascular plants from 1289 species and subspecies and 97 families. The specimens were collected in the PhD project of Garde (1990), project that includes her undergraduate thesis (Garde 1981), that assessed the vascular flora of Ribera Occidental de Navarra (NE Iberian Peninsula, Spain). An inventory was conducted based on fieldwork and taxa were identified. From them, 58 were mentioned as new records for the province of Navarra at the moment of the study.

Sampling Methods

Intensive field studies were made during the 1980-1989 growing seasons when specimens were collected in their characteristic habitats. A comprehensive floristic list for the region was compiled.

Study Extent The specimens were collected in Ribera Occidental de Navarra (northern Spain), a region of 1300 km2 located in the basin of the Ebro river.

Method step description:

  1. Selection and collection of specimens in the field
  2. Specimens were dried and pressed for conservation using standard protocols. Vouchers were deposited in the herbarium of the University of Navarra.
  3. Identification to species or subspecies level using morphological characters. Identification was performed between 1982 and 1990 by L. Garde and M.L. López using Flora europaea (Tutin et al. 1964-1980) and Flora iberica (Castroviejo et al. 1986-1990, volumes 1 and 2).
  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 1986-2010).
  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).
