Occurrence database of native plants and animals of south-central Chile

Latest version published by Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso on Dec 23, 2019 Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso

This database contains occurrence information of native plant and animal species of south-central Chile (with emphasis in the Valdivian rainforest ecosystem). Data presented here correspond to live-trapping events, camera-trap monitoring and censuses conducted in different locations between 2007 and 2018.

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 1,757 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.

Sampling Methods

This database is based on three sampling approaches: live-trapping, camera-trap monitoring, and censuses.

Study Extent There are two main areas: in central Chile we have sampling sites nearby Santiago and at Las Chinchillas National Reserve. In southern Chile, we have 15 sampling sites between southern Bio Bio region up to the Palena Province (Los Lagos region).

Method step description:

  1. (1) Live trapping. Live trapping procedures were conducted using wire-mesh traps (custom-made) as described in the references provided below. (2) Camera traps. Camera-trap monitoring was conducted using wire-mesh traps (custom-made) as described in the references provided below. (3) Plant and bird censuses were conducted using wire-mesh traps (custom-made) as described in the references provided below.
