Curation: Clearing invalid southern African habitats

Curation: Clearing invalid southern African habitats - Southern Africa : A curation tool: 1. To ensure that wrong habitats carried over from the global database are cleaned out of our database 2. To ensure that future errors in habitats are also corrected. There should be no observations in the project.

A curation tool:
1. To ensure that wrong habitats carried over from the global database are cleaned out of our database
2. To ensure that future errors in habitats are also corrected.

There should be no observations in the project. Any that are shown are requiring curation.

The appropriate curations are:

Coastal > should be > Littoral
Farmland > should be > Cropland or Plantation
Freshwater > should be > Aquatic
Gardens and parks > should be > Gardens
Grassland > should be > Grassveld
Heathland > should be > Fynbos
Hedgerows > should be > Cropland
Indoors > should be > Dwellings
Marine > depends - not always obvious: could be Coral, Deepcoral, Littoral, Marine Benthic, Marine Pelagic, Marine Canyon, perhaps even Estuarine
Marsh and bog > should be > Wetland
Mountains and rocks > not appropriate:: no obvious curation possible
Woodland > should be > usually Savanna: Moist, but could be one of the forest types or even Arid Savanna
