Un inventaire documenté d’espèces végétales vasculaires endémiques et rares du Cameroun permettant de connaitre le port végétatif, la répartition géographique, l’écologie et les sites de récolte (nom de la localité et lieu précis de récolte). Les coordonnées indiquées sont celles du lieu précis de récolte relevé par un GPS ou à défaut le gazetier qui sont les coordonnées de la localité signalés sur la carte 1/200000 de Cameroun

A documented inventory of endemic and rare vascular plant species of Cameroon allowing to know the vegetative port, the geographical distribution, the ecology and the harvesting sites (name of the locality and precise place of harvest). The coordinates indicated are those of the precise place of harvesting noted by a GPS or failing that the gazetier which are the coordinates of the locality indicated on the map 1/200000 of Cameroon.

Project Data

This project aims to strengthen the collaboration between GBIF Cameroon, GBIF Benin and GBIF France through the CESP programme. This collaboration will enable GBIF Cameroon to receive guidance and technical assistance from GBIF France and GBIF Benin. The project will increase sharing of experiences between the three nodes, as well as between the former beneficiaries of BID funding. It will also allow the promotion of GBIF through training workshops and the conception, production and dissemination of support materials during the workshop.

Title Mentoring of GBIF Cameroon by GBIF Benin and GBIF France
Identifier CESP2021-002
Funding Project financed by GBIF through its CEPA program € 14,987 and co-financed by GBIF Cameroon for € 30,802.
Study Area Description This dataset lists some of the occurrences of animal and plant species observed on conservation or land restoration sites in the Far North region of Cameroon. These sites are part of the areas delineated by the Ministry in charge of the Environment as part of its "Green Sahel" project. Some data are also from sites set up by partners of this Ministry.
