Tetrápodos de Uruguay

Latest version published by Biodiversidata on Mar 11, 2020 Biodiversidata

The dataset contains primary biodiversity data of native amphibian, reptile, bird and mammal species recorded in Uruguay by members of Biodiversidata between 2000 and 2019. It includes observations made during surveys of specific faunistic groups and occasional sampling events. The presence of individuals was recorded either by direct observations or by preserved specimens deposited in collections.

Data Records

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 2,975 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.

Project Data

Biodiversidata’s data paper (https://doi.org/10.3897/BDJ.7.e36226) was generated with the aim to contribute to the knowledge of the biodiversity of Uruguay by developing the first open-access biodiversity resource for the country. Data was collated from a range of different sources, such as records provided from the members of the organization, data available on online databases and data currently published but not available in digital and standardised format (i.e.: data from field guides and books, and primary literature such as monographs, systematic accounts, species descriptions, reviews and reports of range extensions). The data presented in the current dataset correspond only to the records provided by the members of Biodiversidata.

Title Biodiversidata: An Open-Access Biodiversity Database for Uruguay
Identifier Tetrapods_1.0
Funding The project of Biodiversidata is developed by Florencia Grattarola with a PhD Fellowship from Agencia Nacional de Investigación e Innovación (ANII) – Grant POS_EXT_2016_1_136663
Study Area Description All the Uruguayan territory
Design Description The data were provided by 14 members of Biodiversidata working in the vertebrates group. The dataset contains records made during surveys of specific faunistic groups and occasional sampling events. They consist mostly in human observations which, in some cases, had specimens preserved. In each case, the method and objective of the observation varied and ranged from targeted sampling to non-systematic collection.

Sampling Methods

The dataset contains records made during surveys of specific faunistic groups and occasional sampling events.

Study Extent The data were collected in more than 120 localities of Uruguay.
Quality Control Species were identified by the expert members of Biodiversidata who provided de data. Species names were standardised, and georeferenced point data were checked at state level.

Method step description:

  1. The dataset was prepared to improve the findability, accessibility, interoperability and reuse of the data collated. We enriched the records incorporating more than 30 descriptive terms following the Darwin Core Biodiversity Data Standard (https://dwc.tdwg.org/). The R scripts used to clean the data can be found at: https://github.com/bienflorencia/rBiodiversidata
  2. For standardisation of species names and complete taxonomic categories retrieval given the species names, we used the R package 'taxize' (https://github.com/ropensci/taxize). We followed Integrated Taxonomic Information System database (itis.gov) as reference.
  3. To complete the conservation status of species according to the IUCN Red List assessment, we used the R package 'rredlist' (https://github.com/ropensci/rredlist).
  4. Georeferenced point data resulted from either GPS measurements or by defining the latitude and longitude of the event locality through the GeoNames Gazetteer database (geonames.org). Coordinates are presented in decimal degrees and checked at state level.
