This daset represents 1028 occurrence data in Cameroon of some forest edible fruits of Central Africa. It includes a total of 69 plants species distributed into 32 families. The checklist has been extracted from Eyog Matig et al., 2006, then systematically revised. The locality data is extracted from the specimens of the National Herbarium of Cameroon (YA), then the geographical coordinated are added (YA).
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 985 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.
