Description

This is a checklist resulting from the first comprehensive literature-based inventory of alien plants in Kyrgyzstan. The checklist provides essential information on the species taxonomy, residence status, period of introduction, and distribution (according to phytogeographic regions of Kyrgyzstan).

Data Records

The data in this checklist 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 153 records.

1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Taxon (core)
153
Occurrence 
291

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.

Sampling Methods

The taxonomic dataset is based on the checklist of vascular plants of Kyrgyzstan (2014), from which the data on alien plants were extracted and complemented by the latest literature. The compiled data were evaluated according to the field knowledge of the authors.

Study Extent The dataset contains information on the taxonomy and distribution of alien plants in Kyrgyzstan. It is based on a comprehensive overview of all published data, and is open for regular updates.
Quality Control The taxonomic identity, geographical distribution and residence status of each record have been assessed by the authors on case by case basis, and corrected when necessary.

Method step description:

  1. The original floristic checklist was screened, and a residence status (native or alien) was established for each species.
  2. Distributional data were added for each alien species on the basis of the checklist and personal field knowledge.

Collection Data

Collection Name Institute of Botany, Herbarium
Specimen preservation methods Dried and pressed

Additional Metadata

The precise distributional records have been published via GBIF separately.

Purpose This dataset provides the main taxonomic information and the distributional backbone for the alien vascular plants of Kyrgyzstan.
Maintenance Description Updated as soon as new data emerge.
