Title Restionaceae georeferenced occurrence data for the Cape Floristic Region
Downloaded 3 times
Description The tab-delimited data contain 12903 georeferenced occurrence records of the Restionaceae occurring in the South African Cape Flora. The columns give the species names (column "GenusSpecies"; with the binary scientific names separated by underscore), the date of collection (column "Date"), the coordinates in WGS84 geographic projection (EPSG:4326; columns "Longitude" and "Latitude"), the locality (column "Locality"). Further, we indicate whether the data represents a single occurrence ("specimen") or is part of a plot-releve ("plot"; indicated in column "RecordType"). In the latter case, we indicate the plot-id in the column "PlotID". In case of specimen-data, we indicate the collector (column "Collector") and collection number ("CollectorNumber"). Where available, we also indicate simple site-characteristics in terms of rockiness (column "Rockyness"; three levels "none", "pebblesboulders", "bedrock"), soil-type (column "SoilType"; three levels "organic", "fine", "coarse"), drainage (column "Drainage"; three levels "dry", "damp", "wet"), and aspect (column "Aspect"; with "level" for flat sites and all possible combinations of "n" for North, "e" for East, "s" for South, "w" for West).

Title Geology of the Cape Floristic Region
Downloaded 1 time
Description The zip-archive contains a shapefile in WGS84 geographic projection (EPSG:4326) that holds (in the column "geology") spatially explicit information on six major geological classes ("calcrete", "granite", "recent sand", "silcrete", "sandstones", "shale", and "others" including water-bodies). The column "UQ_GEOL" contains the original geological class according to the South African Council for Geoscience, and "geol_num" is a numerical representation of the classes coded in column "geology".
