Abstract

Georeferenced locality information of all Californian native vascular plant species from herbarium specimens obtained from five different online sources in August 2015: (1) the Consortium of California Herbaria (CCH, http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/consortium/), (2) the Consortium of Pacific Northwest Herbaria (http://www.pnwherbaria.org), (3) Australia’s Virtual Herbarium (avh.chah.org.au), (4) Canadensys (http://www.canadensys.net), and (5) the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (http://www.gbif.org). Data were carefully cleaned as described in Baldwin et al. 2017, and this final data set contains 1,383,762 occurrences.
