Description

DescriptionThis dataset contains the spatial locations of the opportunistically collected Phytophthora sp. infestation information contained in the DEWNR's Biological Database of South Australia (BDBSA). The information has been collected by staff from DEWNR and other government and local government organisations. Data is presence only.
UsageThe data can be used to assist in the management and control of the spread of Phytophthora sp. in South Australia.

Data Quality

LineageLocational information is collected in a number of formats. This includes map coordinates, gps coordinates and general coordinates determined after field work has been completed. The data is verified by the Ecologist - Biosecurity and then entered INTO Opportune database (BDBSA). A table containing the required fields is then derived from the BDBSA on a weekly basis, a spatial layer is generated and then re-loaded into Spatial data library. Verification of the presence of phytophtora is based on a laboratory testing of a soil sample or on the presence of symptoms of phytophthora on plant species that are known to be susceptible.
CompletenessEvery effort has been made to present the locations of Phytophthora infestation as accurate as possible especially when GPS coordinates have been provided. Data set is incomplete and Phytophthora infestations may be present elsewhere. The Ecologist - Biosecurity and designated regional DEH staff regularly collect field information, and the database is then updated by the Ecologist - Biosecurity.
Positional AccuracyPoints are considered reasonably accurate especially when GPS coordinates have been provided. Positional accuracy is related to a location method (Reliability 1=0-50mSELECT 1 FROM DUAL; 2=>50-100mSELECT 1 FROM DUAL; 3=>100-250m)

Flora.PhytophthoraBIOREGIONNAME CharacterIBRA or IMCRA Region name derived from a spatial overlay between the regions and the species observations. Where there is overlap of the regions for Offshore Islands IBRA took precedence.
Flora.PhytophthoraFLORACODE CharacterGenerated from a combination of the first 2 letters of the database (eg SU = Survey), the first letter of the taxon group (eg P = Plant) and the unique identifier from that database (eg Opportune uses SIGHTINGNR, Survey uses VISITNR and SPSEQNR, Plant Population uses POPULATIONNR and VISITNR and Reserves uses PLANTSPNR). For example, SUP10814-55, or OPP226709.
Flora.PhytophthoraNSXCODE CharacterUnique code for each taxonomic entity (species name) in the database used to allow record taxonomy to be updated as changes occur.
Flora.PhytophthoraLATITUDE IntegerThe latitude coordinate of the sighting in GDA94 and decimal degrees.
Flora.PhytophthoraLONGITUDE IntegerThe longitude coordinate of the sighting in GDA94 and decimal degrees.

Flora.PhytophthoraNORTHING IntegerThe northing (y) coordinate of the sighting in Map Grid of Australia 1994 coordinate system.
Flora.PhytophthoraSIGHTINGDATE DateThe date the sighting occurred. Always check the DATEACCURACY where SIGHTINGDATE is the 1st of a month or year.
Flora.PhytophthoraDATEACCURACY CharacterAccuracy of the sighting date. If SIGHTING DATE is the 1st of a month or year it may be that the record was observed on that day (D), sometime that month (M), sometime that year (Y), sometime that decade (T) or sometime that century (C).
Flora.PhytophthoraSIGHTINGNR IntegerOnly populated for Opportune records, (where SOURCE = OP). It is a unique identifier generated in the database for each unique species record
Flora.PhytophthoraRELIABNR NumberEstimation of positional accuracy of the coordinates (In Reserves this field is generated by spatially determining the maximum distance from the centroid to the boundary of the reserve). The description of these codes is available in RELIABDESC.
Flora.PhytophthoraRELIABDESC CharacterDescription of RELIABNR, and relates to the positional reliability of the coordinates, (eg 0-5m, 1-10km, etc).
Flora.PhytophthoraSPRELIABCODE CharacterThe reliability that the species was correctly identified. A filter has been applied to the dataset so that only records with "Y" Or "A" Or "P" and 1-4 are included. Plant Population codes are 1=Voucher in a state herbarium: ID by herbarium staff or taxonomist, 2=ID by herbarium staff or taxonomist, 3=ID by experienced field botanist, 4=Unconfirmed field sighting, and 5=Correct ID doubtful.
Flora.PhytophthoraOBSERVER CharacterThe person(s) who observed the species.
Flora.PhytophthoraISCURRENT CharacterCurrency of the species name. Indicates whether any taxonomic changes have occurred since the observation. Y = taxonomy still current. N = taxonomy has been updated and the record taxonomy needs to be resolved.
Flora.PhytophthoraISINDIGENOUS CharacterIdentification of species as introduced/native: introduced = *, native = blank.
Flora.PhytophthoraSPECIES CharacterTaxonomic name for species observed (combined GENUSNAME and SPECIESNAME). Eg. "Phytothora cinnamomi". Taxonomic names that no longer are current (ISCURRENT=N) have (NC) appended after the species name
Flora.PhytophthoraGENUSNAME CharacterTaxonomic genus of species observed. Eg "Phytopthora".
Flora.PhytophthoraSPECIESNAME CharacterTaxonomic species name (doesn't include genus) of species observed. Eg "cinnamomi".
