InboVeg - Amphibious vegetation of shallow lakes at Turnhout
Releve data from a historical-ecological study of the amphibious vegetation of shallow lakes at Turnhout, Belgium. Releves are comprised from the study period (1999, by Floris Vanderhaeghe) and from older times (1973-1993, by Geert De Blust and including 1 releve by Herman Stieperaere). Many of these phytocoenoses belong to the Littorelletea class.

The data in this sampling event 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 247 records.
2 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.
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.

Turnhout, Flanders, Belgium The Turnhout's shallow lake area is one of the most important heathlands in Flanders with many valuable shallow lakes and heathlands. These heathlands are the biotope of rare plants and animals that have specifically adapted to this environment.

|Title||Historical-ecological study of the amphibious vegetation of shallow lakes at Turnhout|
|Study Area Description||Mainly covers the 'Turnhouts Vennengebied'|
|Design Description||Releves were chosen in situ to represent major vegetation types in each lake. Releve locations comprise a relatively higher share of locations with rare plant species.|
The personnel involved in the project:
Classic releve with the modified scale of Barkman, Doing en Segal (Barkman et al. 1964).
|Study Extent||Several lakes, most of them within the 'Turnhouts Vennengebied': A. Zwart Water Ven Noordwest (ZWNW) B. Zwart Water (ZW) C. Zwart Water Ven West (ZWW) D. De gracht aan de NO-zijde van de Bremstraat (ZWBr) E. Zwart Water Ven Oost (ZWO) F. Zwart Water Afvoerplas (ZWAF) G. Kleine Klotteraard West (KKW) H. Grote Klotteraard(GK) I.

|Quality Control||Quality control took place to check consistency between data on paper and data entered in the original Turboveg database.|
Method step description:
- Vegetation releve data was recorded first in a local Turboveg database, and later on migrated to the InboVeg database. This data was mapped to Darwin Core by creating a specific view. We mapped the data to Darwin core event, Darwin Core occurrence extension and Darwin Core Measurements or Facts for the specific Relevé data. In our sandbox ipt the releve data is also mapped to Darwin Core GBIF releve. This data is only available on http://oefendata.inbo.be/ipt/resource?r=inboveg_niche_vlaanderen
