CeDocBiV databases

CeDocBiV databases

The results of research projects carried out by members of the CeDocBiV are organized into databases, most of which can be consulted online.
The Section on the CeDocBiV’s Databases, which is overseen by Dr Jordi Carreras of the Department of Evolutionary Biology, Ecology and Environmental Sciences, contains the databases of the herbarium BCN, the virtual herbarium, the flora and vegetation databases for Catalonia and the Iberian Peninsula, the UB’s bibliographic resources on plant biodiversity, and a informatic team that develops computer programs.
All the databases can be consulted on this webpage or from the computer terminals at our centre. In the latter case, the staff at the CeDocBiV are available to assist.
You can consult the database of our herbarium computerized specimens (approximately 60 % for the moment) organized in the seven collections that conform our herbarium:  Algae, Brhyophyta, Cormophyta, Ethnobotany, Fruits and seeds collection, Fungi  (including the herbarium of the Catalan Society of Mycology) and Lichens  (including lichen herbarium of Dr. J. M. Egea.
Images of herbarium specimens are organized into groups of special interest: nomenclatural types, teaching herbarium, endemic and threatened species, fruits and seeds collection and historical collections
This contains bibliographic citations georeferenced to UTM grids of at least 10 km and often with additional environmental information, such as altitude, exposure, slope, habitat, etc. Among its many features, the data bank can be consulted for the distribution of each taxon in Catalonia, a list can be obtained of all the taxa present in a given UTM grid square, and it is possible to find out all the communities in which a taxon can be found.
Vegetation maps: server with maps of habitats and plant communities in Catalonia
Vegetation maps 1:50,000 scale maps
Habitat maps 1:50,000 scale maps

Iberian and Macaronesian Vegetation Information System (SIVIM): the system has more than 145,672 items in its inventory, corresponding to 2,440,152 georeferenced plant citations.

ZamiaDroid: application for Android smart phones
The application allows users to record georeferenced observations of plants in pre-defined fields. For each project, users can put their observations in fields for text, thesaurus and photos. The application also allows users to import and export worksheets and display their observations on maps.
