Kosrae Invasive Database was developed from raw data and local knowledge of the people of Kosrae. Thanks to SPREP's coordination of the GBIF Project, especially on the funding available for catering and venue hiring for the Kosrae in-country meetings, and also for their good guidance to our program thorough the process. With such coordination, the participants from all local communities, namely Malem, Utwe, Tafunsak, Lelu, and Walung, were able to share information, knowledge, and experiences regarding established invasive species on Kosrae. Subsequently, all these data are organized and compared by the Plant Protection Program with existing PDF Reports and published docs concerning Kosrae invasive species. ** Thank you to GBIF and the BID programme for their support in mobilizing this dataset ** Publication of this dataset was funded by the European Union
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 14 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.
