Project: Data Collection of H. & H. Doppelbaur

Expansion of the GLOPP information system through integration of the data collection of H. & H. Doppelbaur

punch cards

The data collection by Hans and Hanna Doppelbaur contains more than 21,000 observations about the occurrence of phytopathogenic fungi mainly in Southern Germany. The information comprises the period between 1950 and 1970. The collection has the form of 3,000 dual-use machine- and human-readable punch cards. Each card represents a unique host-parasite association with 0-multiple individual observations. One of the strengths of the punch card collection is that the observations are regularily documented by herbarium specimens. These vouchers (4,992 specimens, 921 taxa) are part of the herbarium H. & H. Doppelbaur, which is now housed at the herbarium of the Botanische Staatssammlung München (M). All punch cards were digitized both as images and as a structured database. The information was integrated into the main GLOPP database and is also searchable as online database "Phytopathogenic Fungi Observed by Hans and Hanna Doppelbaur" (see also About).
