General information

dataset entry ID:
MARS_01
name of the dataset:
full name of the dataset:
Metadata: MARS multiple stressors and biological dataset of Drava & Mura Basins
dataset short name:
MARS DRAVA/MURA stressors and biological dataset
type of dataset (more information):
species (taxonomic group) per site database including environmental information
specify:
Fish ecological data
data type:
point data/observation data, vector data (shape files), descriptive data
short description of the dataset/summary:
This work/dataset addresses human stressors and their impacts on fish assemblages in the Austrian Drava and Mura River Basins. It supports the EU-project MARS (Managing Aquatic ecosystems and water Resources under multiple Stress) by analysing single and multiple stressors, environmental effects and stressor combinations/interactions. Data sources are mainly shape files and MS ACCESS databases.
With the help of point data on connectivity disruptions (barriers) and line data on hydromorphological & water quality stressors (on water body level), six mainly hydromorphological stressors from the national inventory assessment of the EU Water Framework Directive were recoded and aggregated into new variables, i.e. stressor metrics. These then were compared with point data (fish sampling sites) and related information on fish assemblages (Fish Index Austria and related single metrics as well as the WFD biological and total status).
