This repository contains the functionality to standardize two checklists - the Validated red lists of Flanders, Belgium and the Non-validated red lists of Flanders, Belgium - to Darwin Core checklists that can be harvested by GBIF. The repository also contains some miscellaneous scripts.
The source data is an Access database managed by Dirk Maes containing all published red lists for Flanders (see included validated and non-validated red lists). A taxon can appear on multiple red lists. The data are split into two datasets, depending on the type of red list:
Validated red lists: Contains information from red lists that are considered validated, i.e. which used quantitative criteria and a representative sample of occurrences across all ecological regions in Flanders for red list assessment. The database also contains life-history traits for these (
spine) which have been included in the description extension.
Non-validated red lists: Contains information from red lists that are considered non-validated, i.e. which did not use the above criteria.
