Données sur le projet

Access to relevant data and information is critical for conservation of Jamaican biodiversity, especially in light of habitat destruction, invasive alien species (IAS) and climate change. The Natural History Museum of Jamaica (NHMJ) as the national repository of flora and fauna has been instrumental in generating and providing access to Jamaican biodiversity data and information. Its mission is to collect and preserve biodiversity, conduct scientific research and disseminate information to the general public and conservation practitioners. Our biological collections, the oldest and most comprehensive locally, represent all habitat types for Jamaica. Much of our Science Library’s rare books, scientific papers, images and maps complement the biological collections. Referencing these collections, the NHMJ has worked with national project partners (National Environment and Planning Agency and Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust) to develop national conservation strategies and action plans, and protected area management plans. Furthermore, Jamaica’s wildlife research permit system requires that researchers deposit duplicate specimens with the Museum. By enabling national partners along with overseas partner, the Natural History Museum in London, to strengthen collaborative ties and technical resources this project will improve biodiversity knowledge and access to scientific data. Key activities include training in the digitization of publications and specimens, creation of metadata for biological datasets, mapping of research and species distributions, and global sharing of species images, records, and maps. The proposed Biodiversity Information for National Development workshop is intended to highlight the uses of project data for especially IAS management, National Park planning and wildlife research monitoring.

Méthodes d'échantillonnage

The data on the Hymenoptera collections were stored in a specialized database called Biolink. The select dataset was converted from Biolink to Microsoft Excel in order for data managers to clean and verify the information.

Etendue de l'étude The specimens in the dataset were collected from several parishes across Jamaica.Collections were conducted by various collectors/researchers between 1905 and 2018 during special projects and/or to expand the Hymenoptera collections of the Institute of Jamaica. Acquisitions were also done by the curators of the collections since 1905.
Contrôle qualité Persons were trained by project partners from the British Museum of Natural History in the digitization of specimens and the setting up of workflows. Verification of data was performed in house by the Zoology Laboratory Technician and the Senior Research Officer, Entomology and checked on the GBIF data portal.

Description des étapes de la méthode:

  1. Data converted from Biolink to Microsoft Excel.
  2. Cleaning of data: Standardization of data in Excel Sheets, updating and correction of specimen identification with authorities. Data sheet formatted using Darwin Core requirements. Unique identifiers were created for each specimen Generating and printing barcodes Assigning barcodes to specimens and specimen storage areas
