Quality Samplers undergo rigorous training in methodology. Botanical consistency is
maintained by the presence of/training by botanists skilled at identifying the
flora of DWP. Data are keyed electronically in the field, to avoid
transcription errors and samplers examine their field files immediately after
sampling to check for inaccuracies. A data manager checks data for
completeness and consistency with previous data. Taxonomic changes are
incorporated into the data as revisions to species names; in these cases the
original taxon is preserved as a separate field in the database.
Access Constraints Requests for data should be directed to the DWP Research Coordinator. Data will
be provided in electronic format.
Use Constraints Any reports or publications presenting or referring to these datasets must be
approved by the DWP Research Coordinator prior to publication. Proper credit
