Project Data

Images of herbarium specimens were sent to Madagascar and full data transcription and georeferencing took place. Data from TAN and Dr Maria Vorontsova’s research were compiled in the grass database. A checklist of the species which are endemic , alien and/or native are extracted from the book by Jean Bosser (1969)

Title Alien, native and endemic grasses of Madagascar
Identifier BID-AF2017-0103-SMA
Funding this project is co-funded by the European Union, GBIF and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew
Study Area Description Grasses of Madagascar
Design Description The objectives of this project were to digitize all Madagascar and surrounding islands grass specimens from Paris herbarium, making the updated identification of these specimens from Paris and also from the data of TAN herbarium and doing the georeferencing of specimens which are not yet have any coordinates information. Around 14000 data entries with high quality are published on GBIF portal with one checklist of the Madagascar grasses by using the data from Bosser researches. These data are published via the MadBIF IPT and an atlas of Madagascar grasses will be provided.
