The BIOMAN dataset comprises local environmental data and community data of different organism groups (bacterioplankton, zooplankton, ciliates, phytoplankton, macro-invertebrates, fish, protists and aquatic vegetation) from 98 shallow lakes covering three geographic regions in Europe sampled in 2000-2001. The database BIOMAN-Belgium is a subset of the overall BIOMAN dataset and includes data from 39 shallow lakes located in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 480 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

  • Event (core)
    480
  • Occurrence 
    32466
  • MeasurementOrFact 
    2931

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
