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 1,474 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.

|Bounding Coordinates||South West [-36.6, 15.145], North East [-3.385, 55.378]|
distribution of African Echinoderms (starfish, sea-urchins, brittle-stars and their kin) species
|Start Date / End Date||1938-12-03 / 2017-12-29|
update the distribution of all African Echinoderms (starfish, sea-urchins, brittle-stars and their kin) species. Through collaborations with professional scientists, conservation organisations, divers and citizen scientists across Africa, we consolidate all reliable and identifiable evidence of current Echinoderms locations into an open-access digital database.
|Title||FBIP: Atlas of African Echinoderma|
|Funding||Foundational Biodiversity Information Programme|
|Study Area Description||Africa|
The personnel involved in the project:
|Study Extent||Africa (Southern Africa)|
|Quality Control||All VM records include coordinates. Species identificatios in the VM collections are done by a panel of Echinoderm experts. Photos submitted to the virtual museum are biased to species that are easy to photograph and to areas which are most accessible to the public.|
