Kuwait Vegetation Database
Keywords: Arabian Peninsula; desert; Kuwait.
Abstract: The Kuwait Vegetation Database (GIVD ID AS-KW-001) was initiated by L. Mucina during his brief (2-year) stay with the Kuwait University. The primary aim of this database has been to collect and collate all vegetation plot data onto one electronic database platform conform with the formatting standards of the global TURBOVEG community of users. The plant checklist assisting the data capture of the Kuwaiti vegetation plot data is based on an unpublished document (L. Mucina, Annotated Checklist of the Flora of Kuwait, version 1999). The database also serves as data depository of unpublished relevés made by the author during his stay in Kuwait (1998–2000).
