TURBOVEG is currently the standard for Arctic vegetation-plot observations allowing the AVA to apply standardized plant nomenclature during data entry and to create a uniform format of the vegetation record of relevés.

When not being familiar with the TURBOVEG software, the following manual can be used

***Turboveg_for_windows_manual***

During an AVA workshop in Arkhangelsk, 2019, the following suggestions were developed for data entries:

  • Consistent column headers for all contributing data to the AVA. Column headers are limited to ten characters.
  • The source of the proposed fields is either standard Turboveg or added for the AVA. Fields are either alphabetic characters (C) or numbers (N) or a combination (C/N).
  • Fill in codes for fields with popup lists. For numerical fields with no data, indicate '-9'. For categorical fields, check pop-up list in data dictionary for an alternate option or leave blank.
  • Note: Total number of species, vascular plants, mosses, liverworts and lichens will be generated in Turboveg.
  • Standardize data in the national AVAs, including use of unique Turboveg relevé numbers (e.g., Alaska (10000-19999), Russia (20000-29999), Canada 30000-39999), etc.); development of country archive coordinators; development of species synonym lists for each country linked to the current Pan-Arctic Species List (PASL).
