The Cryptogamic Herbarium of the Department of Biological Sciences (WIN) contains approximately 15,000 specimens of lichens and bryophytes, with over 5,500 records available on Canadensys and GBIF. Cladonia collections from Manitoba and Newfoundland, and lichen specimens from Wapusk National Park, comprise a large part of this collection.
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 5,587 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.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
