Cape Verde Herpetological Collection - IICT

Dernière version Publié par Instituto de Investigação Científica Tropical le Dec 20, 2018 Instituto de Investigação Científica Tropical

The Cape Verde herpetological collections of the Instituto de Investigação Científica Tropical (IICT), currently housed in the Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência (MUHNAC) are part of the scientific collections of the Universidade de Lisboa (UL), Portugal. This set comprises a total of 1747 records (1747 specimens), representing 20 taxa (1 amphibians and 19 reptiles), turning the collection into the richest Cape Verde herpetological collection in the world. These were collected between 1967 and 1993, either by targeted surveys promoted by the IICT or by fortuitous collections and donations by private individuals and researchers.

Méthodes d'échantillonnage

The majority of the records of this dataset result from the Missões Zoológicas do Ultramar carried out by the former Junta de Investigação do Ultramar. Only a small part of these specimens were previously studied and published (Pinheiro 1989).

Etendue de l'étude The study covers part of Cape Verde Islands, which includes 7 islands (Brava, Fogo, Maio, Santiago, Santo Antão, São Nicolau and São Vicente) and two islets (Branco and Raso). The temporal distribution is mainly concentrated between the 1969 and 1972.
Contrôle qualité Information from each specimen was catalogued in an Excel spreadsheet, involving two steps: i) digitization of specimen records; and ii) taxonomic revision and data checking. Nomenclature was checked through available literature (Arnold et al. 2008; Miralles et al. 2010; Vasconcelos et al. 2012), The Reptile Database [http://reptile-database.reptarium.cz/], and the Amphibia Species of the World v.6.0 [http://research.amnh.org/vz/herpetology/amphibia/]. Georeferencing followed the recommendations by Chapman and Wieczorek (2006), including the determination of uncertainty of coordinates, in particular when insufficient information was available from specimens' records and labels to attribute a specific locality (e.g. names of riversides, properties, etc.).

Description des étapes de la méthode:

  1. The herpetological collections were catalogued using the software Microsoft Excel. We conducted extensive shelf surveys to locate all the remaining Cape Verde specimens of amphibians and reptiles. After locating the specimens, basic curatorial procedures were taken. Each jar was cleaned, and ethanol or formalin was changed to 70% etanol gradually. In certain cases jars were substituted as they were cracked or were otherwise not reliably sealable. All the information linked to the survinving specimens and/or jars were collected, copied, and linked to the specimen. After completion of curatorial activities, each specimen was identified to the species and/or subspecies level. The identification of the specimens was accomplished by consulting the most updated available literature sources and followed the currently accepted nomenclature. Additionally, the specimens' original information was re-checked at this phase, comparing the label data with surviving original field books and catalgoues, in order to screen for any initial cataloguing errors. The collecting locality for each bibliographic reference was georeferenced using the published Lepidoptera paper from Mendes & Bivar de Sousa (2010). When no data were available in Mendes & Bivar de Sousa (2010), or in the recent publications, we used "GEOLocate online application" (http://www.museum.tulane.edu/geolocate/) for georeferencing the locality cited . The uncertainty of georeferenced localities was recorded whenever possible. For some records it was not possible to determine the coordinates due to insufficient location information. All coordinates are given in geographic format, decimal degrees, datum WGS 84.
