The floristic survey was carried out along the metro rail track. From the metro rail track, 250 m line transects were laid and floristic data was recorded.
The data in this sampling event 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 102 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
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.

Metro rail; Ahmedabad; Gandhinagar; Checklist
Floristic Survey was carried out in the Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar cities along the metro rail track. Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar are located on the bank of the River Sabarmati in the northern part of Gujarat and western part of India. Gandhinagar is the state capital city of Gujarat State of India. It lies on the west bank of the Sabarmati River. Ahmedabad is largest city and former capital of Gujarat State. It is also sixth largest city of India and is situated 30 km away from the capital city Gandhinagar. The study area falls under semi-arid biogeographic zone and 4B Gujarat-Rajwara biotic provinces of India.

|Study of Biodiversity of Ahmedabad Metro Rail project Phase II, Surat Metro Rail project Phase I and its Data Sharing on GBIF Platform
The personnel involved in the project:
With the assistance of the RS-GIS unit of the GEER Foundation, all habitat diversity was located, and a detailed inventory of each habitat was completed. Plant species were grouped according to their habits, such as trees, shrubs, climbers, herbs, grasses, etc.
|Using a stratified sample approach, the floristic inventory was completed, covering the diversity of habitats on both sides of the Metro Rail track. A 250-meter transect was planned out on both sides of the Metro Rail Project to encompass all adjacent habitats, including wetlands, agricultural lands, woods, grasslands, and wastelands. All habitat variety was discovered with the assistance of the GEER Foundation's RS-GIS team.
Method step description:
- The floristic inventory was carried out through stratified sampling manner that was cover all habitat diversity found on both sides of the Metro Rail track. On both sides of the Metro Rail Project, a transect with a length of 250m laid in such way that was cover all habitats such as wetlands, agricultural lands, forests, grasslands, wastelands etc. nearby the project area. All habitat diversity had find out with the help of RS-GIS unit of GEER Foundation and an inventory of each habitat was carried out thoroughly and all plant Species categorized as per habit of plants such as tree, shrub, climber, herbs, grasses etc.
