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 205 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.

This daset represents 205 occurrence data of some reported antimalarial plants from Cameroon. It includes a total of 19 species distributed into 13 families. The checklist has been extracted from Adjanohoun et al. (1996) and other scientific papers , then systematically revised using the database for the Tropical African flowering plants of the Conservatoire et Jardins Botaniques de la ville de Génève (http://www.ville-ge.ch/musinfo/bd/cjb/africa/recherche.php?langue=fr). The locality data is extracted from specimens of the National Herbarium of Cameroon and the geographical coordinated are added using the the 1: 200000 IGN maps.

The project aim to (i) increase national capacity for biodiversity information management in Cameroon and (ii) establish national biodiversity information facilities, including national information management infrastructure and nodal structure in Cameroon. Immediate result is that data on species in Cameroon are made freely accessible online via GBIF.org, and via national channels for local stakeholders, contributing to increase accessibility of data on species in Africa. The expected impact is an improved status of the sustainable development goals in Cameroon.
