Descriptor List of the European Central Poa Database

 

No. Name Description
1 Institute code (INSTCODE) Code of the institute where the accession is maintained. The codes consist of the 3-letter ISO 3166 country code of the country where the institute is located plus number or an acronym as specified in the Institute database that will be made available by FAO. 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.
5 Decoded collecting institute (COLLDESCR) Brief name and location of the collecting institute.

8 Species authority (SPAUTHOR) The authority for the species name.
9 Subtaxa (SUBTAXA) Subtaxa is used to store any additional taxonomic identifier. Following abbreviations are allowed: "ssp." (for subspecies); "var." (for variety); "convar." (for convariety); "f." (for form).

16 Latitude of collecting site (LATITUDE) Degrees and minutes followed by N (North) or S (South) (e.g. 1030S) or any other known data.
17 Longitude of collecting site (LONGITUDE) Degrees and minutes followed by E (East) or W (West) (e.g. 07625W) or any other known data.
18 Elevation of collecting site (ELEVATION) Elevation of collecting site expressed in meters above sea level. Negative values allowed.
19 Collecting date of original sample (COLLDATE) Collecting date of the original sample where YYYY is the year, MM is the month and DD is the day.
