SNRI (Stichting Nationaal Rijstonderzoeks Instituut) is a foundation, mandated to reinvigorate rice research in Suriname through the establishment of a new research centre in Nickerie in 1994. ADRON (Anne van Dijk Rijst Onderzoekscentrum Nickerie) is part of SNRI. The Centre is a vehicle for improving the rice sector. SNRI/ADRON saw the opportunity to set-up and maintain a dried collection of weeds. This need was identified years earlier but not given priority. Digitizing the weeds collection and the establishment of the dried collection will ensure data mobilization of weeds since weeds are a major issue in the rice production ecosystem. The collection contains over 500 weeds collected from the rice fields of Suriname, but mainly from the Nickerie district. Weeds were collected from 2009 until 2013. After a hiatus recollection restarted in 2017.
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 478 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.
