Herbario LUA - Instituto Investigação Agronómica

Latest version published by INSTITUTO DE INVESTIGAÇÃO AGRONÓMICA - IIA on Mar 27, 2019 INSTITUTO DE INVESTIGAÇÃO AGRONÓMICA - IIA

This dataset represents the Herbarium LUA from the Institutio de Investigação Agronónimica (IIA) located in Chianga, Huambo, Angola. The LUA Herbarium is estimated to host about 40.000 specimenes. During the Angola civil war, the herbarium was transported to Luanda (LUAI Herbarium) and more than 10 years after the war ended it was returned to Huambo where is has been stored and sorted again in the original herbarium room and is being digitized thanks to a GBIF - BID grant. Acording to Figuereido & Smith (2008) LUA is important as it holds duplicates of the Gossweiler collection and also of collections by Antunes and Dekindt, being the last two collectors materials deposited at B and used to describe several taxa, providing the holotypes of those names. During World War II a fire consumed the herbarium and many of these holo-types were destroyed but some duplicates (isotypes) may be found among the LUA collections.

The data available in this dataset do not represent the whole herbarium collection since this is a work in pogress. The dataset represents an estimated 65% of the whole herbarium so far The Herbarium contains specimens mainly from Angola but some are from Portugal, Cameroon, South Africa, Namibia, São Tomé and Príncipe and Guinea-Bissau, among other countries.
