data type:
point data/observation data
short description of the dataset/summary:
The B-BLOOMS2 dataset resulted from the monitoring of 4 Belgian reference lakes during the bloom seasons in 2007 and 2008. It is composed of 278 sample events for which 17 environmental parameters are available, as well as HPLC based pigment analysis, zooplankton counting, proportion of cyanobacterial populations (from genus to species), and MC-LR concentrations determined by ELISA. Molecular data acquired during this project are also available (http://hdl.handle.net/2268/213145).

These data were acquired with the financial support of BELSPO in the frame of the Science for a Sustainable Development programme funding the project B-BLOOMS2 (SD/TE/01).
The final report is available at: http://www.bblooms.be/BBLOOMS2_FinalReport.pdf

no
number of samples:
278
specification of method(s) used for sampling and sorting:
Zooplankton was collected from each lake, using buckets or a Schlindler-Patalas plankton trap. Enumeration was performed using a dissecting microscope for larger taxa (cladocerans, copepodites and adult copepods) and using a microscope for small 'forms' (nauplii, rotifers). Cladocerans were identified as large or small cladocerans, whereas copepods were identified as calanoids, cyclopoids, and nauplii.
