Baldwin, Bruce G. et al. (2017), Master spatial file for native California vascular plants used by Baldwin et al. (2017 Amer. J. Bot.), v4, UC Berkeley, Dataset, https://doi.org/10.6078/D16K5W
Georeferenced locality information of all Californian native vascular plant species from herbarium specimens obtained from five different online sources in August 2015: (1) the Consortium of California Herbaria (CCH, http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/consortium/), (2) the Consortium of Pacific Northwest Herbaria (http://www.pnwherbaria.org), (3) Australia’s Virtual Herbarium (avh.chah.org.au), (4) Canadensys (http://www.canadensys.net), and (5) the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (http://www.gbif.org). Data were carefully cleaned as described in Baldwin et al. 2017, and this final data set contains 1,383,762 occurrences.
The full spatial data set from: Baldwin, B.G., A.H. Thornhill, W.A. Freyman, D.D. Ackerly, M.M. Kling, N. Morueta-Holme, and B.D. Mishler. 2017. Species richness and endemism in the native flora of California. American Journal of Botany. 104: 487–501. http://www.amjbot.org/content/104/3/487.full
