Australian collecting events for Robert Mesibov, 1973-2020

Mesibov, Robert

Dates, georeferenced locations and associated data for 3840 unique collecting events in Australia with Robert Mesibov as sole, primary or associated collector from 1973 to 2020. Version 2 adds several events and corrects and annotates my collections near Savage River, Tasmania in 1973 and 1974. Version 3 corrects the georeference for REM-event-2140. Version 4 corrects the date for REM-event-1950 and adds two "new" records (from 1994 and 1998). Version 5 adds two "new" records (from 1984 and 1991). Version 6 deletes REM-event-1946, which duplicated REM-event-1787.

Version 7 is (I hope!) the final version. It adds some "new" records previously overlooked, corrects the georeferences for events 0042, 0244 and 0081, and deletes the "fieldNumber" field (which really only applied to samples, not events).
