name of the dataset:
full name of the dataset:
Tommelen bomb crater pools
dataset short name:
Tommelen
type of dataset (more information):
species (taxonomic group) per site database including environmental information
data type:
point data/observation data
short description of the dataset/summary:
The Tommelen dataset contains data from bomb crater pools (n=23) at Tommelen nature reserve (Hasselt, Belgium) (122 pools in an area of 12 ha). These ponds have been sampled annually from 2007 until 2012. A subset of the investigated ponds has been dredged in winter 2008.

This database comprises biodiversity data on aquatic macro-invertebrates and macrophytes, as well as information on major local environmental variables. Aquatic macro-invertebrates were sampled in 2008 and 2009. Macrophytes data are available for 2007, 2010 and 2012.
