short description of the dataset/summary:
This data set contains an overview of biological and environmental data from the Regge and Dinkel catchment, the Netherlands. The main factors that impact this catchment are hydrological alteration, groundwater abstraction and drainage, point source and diffuse nutrient loading.
The data has been collected between 2000 and 2012 by the waterboard Vechtstromen and contains macroinvertebrate, macrophyte, fish, and physico-chemical parameters. The dataset is available upon request from the waterboard Vechtstromen.
