Database on reference specimens for medicinal plants of the Rubiaceae family, conserved at the CNARP herbarium

Latest version published by CNARP on Jul 27, 2018 CNARP

This collection concerns mainly plants, within the Rubiaceae family sensus lato, with medicinal properties or used in traditional medicine, but it does not exclude other sympatric species.

This database was extracted from the four collections of reference specimens on medicinal plants deposited at the CNARP herbarium: http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medicinal_plants_orstom_cnarp&v=1.0, http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medecinal_plants_cnarp&v=1.0, http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medecinal_plants_nci_cnarp&v=1.0 and http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medecinal_plants_icbg_cnarp&v=1.1

Project Data

The digitization of the reference specimens of medicinal plants conserved at the CNARP herbarium was initiated during SEP-CEPDEC 1, tne BID program allowed to continuing the digitization of some threatend and invasive species. (https://www.gbif.org/project/82750/capacity-building-and-biodiversity-data-mobilization-for-conservation-and-policy-in-africa) The digitization in itself was carried out by CNARP team and data cleaning, further georeferencing, formating and publishing were assured by MadBIF team.

Title Mobilization of reference specimens data on the Rubiaceae family, owned by CNARP, for conservation, sustainable use and decision making in Madagascar
Identifier BID-AF2015-0066-REG
Funding The digitization of this family has been possible thanks to an European Union funding through the BID program coordinated by GBIF.
Study Area Description Invasive alien species and endangered species were the two firsts of the 8 priority areas defined by the ACM in its WP 2015-2016. In this regard, the consortium retained 8 families of each category for the project. The Rubiaceae family was chosen by the consortium as one of the priority family of threatned species.

Sampling Methods

All of the Rubiaceae family specimens from the herbarium were digitized. These specimens were collected from the Malagasy territory. The collection includes mainly medicinal plants but are not exclusively so.

Study Extent The digitization program concerns all specimens of the targeted families owned by CNARP
Quality Control Before publishing, the nomenclature was checked and updated with Catalogue of life, Tropicos database and/or IPNI, we used the OpenRefine tool as well to clean the data

Method step description:

  1. Nomenclatural check, Scientific authorship check (Standard use) Typing check Data mapping Data publishing
