  • Notes

    The YSU BC currently stores about 15000 specimens of fungi, mosses, hepatics and vascular plants. It was initially based on private collections of several researchers working on biodiversity assessment in Yugra State University. In 2017 YSU BC is registered as a data publisher in GBIF (https://www.gbif.org/publisher/fa46e267-4d25-41f5-bbbe-1cd75860b943). The main goal of the YSU BC is to develop reference library of regional biodiversity, support research in systematics, ecology, phylogeny and applied disciplines, and manage associated biodiversity information in the Northern West Siberia. For that purpose, we are developing conditions for physical storage of samples, facilitating their scientific analysis, and applying modern computer technologies for storage, analysis and distribution of collection data. The database of YSU BC is developed using Specify software. The Specify Web Portal (http://bioportal.ugrasu.ru/) available for the database search, browsing the map and images, and download. The database is shared through GBIF by IPT software using MySQL queries to each individual collection, including images of specimens.
