short description of the dataset/summary:
The MOSAIC database holds data collected by the Julius Kuehn Institute under its monitoring activities for the implementation of Germany's National Action Plan for the Sustainable Use of Plant Protection Products. At this stage (May 2019), the database contains data on benthic macro-invertebrate community composition and concentrations of pesticides of currently 162 small lentic water bodies (<1 ha surface area) of North-East Germany. MOSAIC will be continuously updated with data from new sampling campaigns and future projects concerning the impacts of agriculture and agrochemicals on the ecological status of lentic and lotic small water bodies. Further sampling locations covering a wider geographical range will be included in future. Sampling locations are situated on or adjacent to agricultural fields and partly at reference sites, and sampling was performed using a multi-habitat-sampling method (invertebrates) and grab or passive sampling of water (pesticides). Taxa were identified to the most precise taxonomic level possible (species level whenever possible). Additionally, the database contains information on physico-chemical parameters, nutrients and agricultural management.

The content of the MOSAIC database presents a unique resource on the biodiversity of Germany's small water bodies and its potential threat by agriculture. At the current stage, it focuses on lentic water bodies which are hot spots of biodiversity. MOSAIC allows extracting information on e.g. toxic pressure of agrochemicals, field crop impact or vegetated buffer strips on all major groups of benthic invertebrates. The access is currently available to JKI staff and collaborating researchers with future web-based open access possibilities planned.



short description of the dataset/summary (original/national language):
Die MOSAIC-Datenbank enthält Daten, die vom Julius Kühn-Institut während seiner Aktivitäten zur Umsetzung des Nationalen Aktionsplans zur nachhaltigen Anwendung von Pflanzenschutzmitteln erhoben wurden. Die Datenbank enthält aktuell (Stand Mai 2019) Daten zur Zusammensetzung der Lebensgemeinschaft benthischer wirbelloser Organismen (Makrozoobenthos) sowie Konzentrationen an Pflanzenschutzmitteln aus 162 stehenden Kleingewässern (Gewässergröße < 1 ha) Nordostdeutschlands. MOSAIC wird mit Daten neuer Untersuchungen sowie zukünftiger Projekte über den Einfluss der Landwirtschaft auf den ökologischen Zustand von Kleingewässern kontinuierlich erweitert werden. Zukünftige Probenahme-Standorte werden eine größere geographische Ausdehnung über Nordostdeutschland hinaus abdecken. Die Untersuchungsgewässer liegen entweder auf oder angrenzend an landwirtschaftlichen Nutzflächen und zum Teil in Referenzgebieten. Die Probenahmen wurden mittels Multi-Habitat-Beprobung (Makrozoobenthos) oder durch Passivsammler und Schöpfproben (Agrarchemikalien) durchgeführt. Die gefundenen Taxa des Makrozoobenthos wurden bis zum bestmöglichen taxonomischen Niveau (wenn möglich Artniveau) bestimmt. Die Datenbank enthält weiterhin Informationen zu chemisch-physikalischen Wasserparametern, Nährstoffbelastungen sowie zum Management der umgebenden landwirtschaftlichen Nutzflächen.

Der Inhalt der MOSAIC-Datenbank stellt eine einzigartige Ressource über die Biodiversität von Deutschlands Kleingewässern und deren potenzielle Bedrohung durch die Landwirtschaft dar. Im gegenwärtigen Stadium konzentriert sich der Inhalt der Datenbank auf stehende Kleingewässer, die zu den Hot Spots der Biodiversität zählen. MOSAIC ermöglicht es, die Auswirkungen z.B. der Toxizität von Agrarchemikalien, des Anbaus verschiedener Feldkulturen oder der Ausgestaltung von Gewässerrandstreifen auf alle wichtigen Gruppen des Makrozoobenthos abzuschätzen. Der Zugang steht derzeit den Mitarbeitern des JKI sowie kooperierenden Wissenschaftlern zur Verfügung, wobei zukünftige webbasierte Open-Access-Möglichkeiten geplant sind.
