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. The digitization of these collections was initiated during the first stage of SEP-CEPDEC and the numerization of this family was made possible through the BID-AF2015-006-REG project funded by the European Union through the BID program managed by GBIF.
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 193 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.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

This activity is part of the BID-AF2015-0066-REG (https://www.gbif.org/project/82750/capacity-building-and-biodiversity-data-mobilization-for-conservation-and-policy-in-africa). The Anacardiaceae family was one of the 8 priority threatened families retained by the consortium for the study.
|Mobilization of reference specimens data on the Anacardiaceae family owned by CNARP for conservation, sustainable use and decision making in Madagascar
|The project is funded by the European Union through the BID program coordinated by GBIF.
|Study Area Description
|Invasives 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.
|Digitization of occurrence data from herbarium labels, observations, litteratures... and publication of the informations on GBIF portal
The personnel involved in the project:
- Principal Investigator
