Sightings Map of Invasive Plants in PortugalAcronym: Invasoras LSID
The dataset available through the Sightings Map of Invasive Plants in Portugal results from a Citizen Science platform available at invasoras.pt, which records sightings of invasive plants in Portugal (mainland and Archipelagos of Madeira and Azores). This platform is part of the project “Plantas Invasoras: uma ameaça vinda de fora” (Media Ciência nº 16905), developed by researchers from Centre for Functional Ecology of University of Coimbra and of Coimbra College of Agriculture of the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra.
Sightings are made by users who register at the platform and submit them, either directly on the website http://invasoras.pt/en/sightings-map/) or using an app for Android devices http://invasoras.pt/en/download-the-app-for-android/); only validated sightings are available on the dataset. Validation is made based on photographs submitted along with the sightings. As with all citizen science projects there is some risk of erroneous records and duplication of sightings.
