Descriptor List of the European Central Poa Database

 

No. Name Description
1 Institute code (INSTCODE) Code of the institute where the accession is maintained.

Preliminary codes (i.e. codes not yet incorporated in the FAO Institute database) start with an asterisk followed by a 3-letter ISO 3166 country code and an acronym.
2 Accession number (ACCENUMB) This number serves as a unique identifier for accessions and is assigned when an accession is entered into the collection.
3 Collecting number (COLLNUMB) Original number assigned by the collector(s) of the sample, normally composed of the name or initials of the collector(s) followed by a number. This item is essential for identifying duplicates held in different collections. It should be unique and always accompany subsamples wherever they are sent.
4 Collecting institute code (COLLCODE) Code of the institute collecting the sample.
