Metadatabase view - dataset: Freshwater fishes Italy

General information

dataset entry ID:
BF_CF22
name of the dataset:
full name of the dataset:
Freshwater fishes Italy
type of dataset (more information):
species distribution data
data type:
point data/observation data
short description of the dataset/summary:
The database reflects the widely distributed data for Italian freshwater fish occurrences collected in the last 20 years. These data are actually hidden in fisheries plans and studies of the Italian provinces, regions, parks, and some other local administration databases and “grey literature”. These databases and literature resources are collected together, and the records are georeferenced and organized into one database (using Artedian http://artedi.nrm.se/fishbase_se/software/artedian/).
