Description

The dataset represent records of saproxylic beetles collected through citizen science campaign "Jeste li ih vidjeli?" ("Did you see them?"), organized by the Institute for Environment and Nature, Croatia. This campaign is ongoing since 2015. The saproxylic beetle records are reported by public through specific on-line form or by email. Each record should have an accompanying photograph, based on which record is validated by experts in the IEN.

Data Records

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 3,127 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.

Project Data

In this project the The Belgian BiodiversityPlatform (BBPF) transfers the knowledge and experience they have in the GBIFnode establishment to the newly established Croatian GBIF node. This is implemented through hands on workshop, where all relevant available information from the secretariat (i.e. strategic plan 23-27, workplan 23-27, the GBIF structure, Governing board, standards, data cleaning, data publishing, data papers, CESP, ECA nodes & the GBIF network, node meetings, nodes focus, ambassador program, mentor program, GBIF discourse community, GBIF Github repository, enlarging the national network) are discussed, and how those elements can be best implemented in the work of Croatian GBIF node. This project will support creation of formal collaboration for data mobilization in Croatia through networking and preparation of data mobilization strategy. At least one occurrence dataset on saproxylic beetles listed on the annexes of the EU Habitats Directive and at least one occurrence dataset on vascular flora species listed on the annexes of the Habitats Directive will be mobilized, with in total more than 10 000 records.

Sampling Methods

Records are acquired randomly by public, without any structured sampling protocol.

Study Extent Whole of Croatia
Quality Control Species identification was verified by an expert in case where there was a supporting photograph of the reported species.

Method step description:

  1. Every record reported by the public must have a supporting photograph of the species being reported. Records are submitted through on-line reporting form. Species identifications are validated by an expert. Records not containing information on coordinates are georeferenced according to the locality description.
