Red Book of Altai Mountain Country (plants)
Dataset is implementing one of the tasks of the “Flora Altaica” Project (http://altaiflora.asu.ru) to monitor rare and endemic plant species that grow in the Altai Mountainous Country using biodiversity informatics. The obligatory basis for the entry of the taxon into the Dataset "Red Book of Altai Mountain Country (plants)", as well as for the currently available ones, is the presence of precise geo-referencing. The empirical background to the dataset is the material of Herbarium ALTB (Barnaul), with more than 450 thousand specimens. It is planned to update regularly the dataset "Red Book of Altai Mountain Country (plants)" with information on new locations and taxa from the list in case they appear in the collection of Herbarium ALTB. The AMC's borders are defined according to 19 botanical and geographical areas revealed by R. V. Kamelin in the first volume of “Flora Altaica” (Flora Altaica, V. 1, 2005. The team of authors (Ed.) R.V. Kamelyn, Barnaul, 340 p.). The AMC polygon (GeoJSON) for the required taxon research is available in the section “AMC Map” of the project “Flora Altaica" on the website (http://altaiflora.asu.ru MAP). GeoJSON polygon can be implemented in "Location" item of "Occurrence" section of GBIF.
