Long-term (1901-2017) phenology data of 20 forest understory herbs in Europe, collected from herbaria and GBIF, used in: \"Forest wildflowers bloom earlier as Europe warms: Lessons from herbaria and spatial modeling\", New Phytologist

Franziska Merle Willems
Today plants often flower earlier due to climate warming, and the collection dates of herbarium specimens can provide proof of this.
To test for such fingerprints of climate change in Europe, we compiled a long-term (1901-2017) dataset from 6131 herbarium specimens of 20 early-flowering European forest understory herbs. The data were collected in the herbaria of Jena (JE), Stuttgart (STU) and Tübingen (TUB), and were complemented with herbarium data from the database GBIF.
