National Herbarium of Suriname Collection consist of plant specimen collected in Suriname and the region since the 19th century.
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 3,498 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.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

The objectives of the project are: Set up the structures and infrastructure to achieve the data flow between the main data holding institutions Process and digitize data to be disseminated in a structural way to the SMIN Create a knowledge and information platform where data will be mobilized and integrated to promote environmental planning and policy-making nationally
|Title||Implementing biodiversity data flow on the national level by creating data structures between BBS, NZCS/CMO and NIMOS within the Suriname Environmental Information Network (SMIN)|
|Funding||EU funded project Co-funding will be provided by the UTSN project, implemented by the National Zoological Collection Suriname (NZCS/CMO)|
|Study Area Description||Collections of the National Herbarium of Suriname (BBS) and the National Zoological Collection Suriname (NZCS/CMO) Environmental data, namely mercury occurrences in fresh water areas in Suriname|
|Design Description||Activities: Create workflow or process model for data mobilization to streamline the activities within the consortium Develop and manage databases at BBS, NZCS/CMO and NIMOS Evaluate protocols and interim reports according to the implementation plan. Results: Datasets with collections data and images, digitized and added to the databases at BBS, NZCS/CMO and NIMOS Databases at institutional level that are interoperable with national and regional databases The deliverables that will be evaluated include among others metadata for flora and fauna, data summary tables, and species distributions map products|
