Validated red lists of Flanders, Belgium

Latest version published by Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) on Apr 10, 2019 Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO)

The Validated red lists of Flanders, Belgium is a species checklist dataset published by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) and described (v1.3) in Maes et al. 2019b (https://doi.org/10.3897/BDJ.7.e34089). It includes 3.063 taxa from 19 Flemish red lists that are considered validated, i.e. which used quantitative criteria and a representative sample of occurrences across all ecological regions in Flanders (Maes et al. 2015) for red list assessment. Here this compilation is published as a standardized Darwin Core Archive and includes for each taxon: the scientific name, higher classification (provided by the GBIF Backbone Taxonomy, https://doi.org/10.15468/39omei), stable taxon identifier and Dutch vernacular name (in the taxon core), the red list category in Flanders as published, its IUCN equivalent and year of assessment (respectively in occurrenceRemarks, threatStatus and eventDate in the distribution extension), and the life-history traits biome, biotope, cuddliness, lifespan, mobility, nutrient level, and spine (in the description extension). Issues with the dataset can be reported at: https://github.com/inbo/rl-flanders-checklist

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 3,063 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.

  • Taxon (core)
    3063
  • Description 
    21132
  • Distribution 
    3063

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.
