Plant occurrences on small islands in the Raja Ampat Archipelago, Indonesia
This dataset holds information of woody plants on 60 small tropical islands located in the Raja Ampat archipelago in Indonesia. The dataset includes occurrence data for 57 species.
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 373 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.

|Title||A new dataset on plant occurrences on small islands including species abundances and functional traits across different spatial scales|
The personnel involved in the project:
To sample species occurrences, we used a transect design subdivided into plots. All transects had a dimension of 2 x 10 m and comprised of five 2 x 2 m plots. The number of transects on an island was roughly proportional to the island area. We recorded all species with a diameter at breast height ≥2 cm rooted within the plots.

|Study Extent||The dataset includes 40 small islands located in the Raja Ampat archipelago in West Papua, Indonesia. Botanical field surveys were conducted during six months between June 2016 to February 2018.|
