Abstract

Georeferenced locality information for 1083 OTUs assembled from  all Californian native vascular plant records 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 combined into OTUs as described in Thornhill et al. 2017. For some OTUs, additional records could be added that were identified only to genus in the dataset used by Baldwin et al. 2017; the final data set contains 1,395,079 occurrences.
