In 2014, an analysis of sandstone vs basalt biodiversity richness was undertaken in the central Stormberg by Ms Elizabeth Gaisford as an Honours project at Rhodes University (Gaisford 2014). This resulted in the following collections: • Gaisford EL – c.500 records (various part of the central Stormberg, January/February 2014). • Clark VR & Gaisford EL – 350 collections (central Stormberg, March 2014). An additional collecting trip in December 2014 yielded the following: • Clark VR et al. – 331 collections (Bamboesberge & Andriesberg, December 2014). The 2014 material has all been identified, labelled and databased in BRAHMS, and will also form part of the FBIP project. As for the other collections, duplicate material of certain genera/families has been sent to various taxonomists around the world. The GRA material is in the process of being mounted for filing.
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 802 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.
