General information

dataset entry ID:
FWM_21
name of the dataset:
full name of the dataset:
Occurrence data of large branchiopods in the Northern Western Ghats, India
dataset short name:
Branchiopod occurrence data in Western Ghats, Indi
type of dataset (more information):
species distribution data
data type:
point data/observation data
short description of the dataset/summary:
The field data provide species distribution records of a crustacean group called the large branchiopods from some freshwater habitats in the Western Ghats of India. Species occurrence data have been collected from the year 2009 until 2017 at 45 different localities by means of qualitative sampling using a hand net of 150 ┬Ám mesh. Data include species name and occurrence records with name, GIS information and waterbody type of the sampled locality. A total of 12 species from 5 different orders which includes three new endemic species and two distinct populations are reported from a total of 90 samples (Rogers and Padhye 2014, 2015; Padhye and Dahanukar, 2015; Padhye and Ghate 2016; Padhye and Kulkarni, 2017; Padhye et al. 2015, 2016, 2018). All the three endemic species have a geographically restricted range with one species, Leptestheria gurneyi known only from its type locality till date. These data, therefore, provide baseline information for future biodiversity conservation planning and management of the habitats as well as the species.
