descriptive data
short description of the dataset/summary:
The database contains metadata of biological monitoring projects of rivers and their floodplains in Germany and gives a first overview about nationwide monitoring activities. More detailed information about single projects are given in the data entries UFO_11, UFO_12 and UFO_17 to UFO_24 of the Freshwater Metadatabase (http://data.freshwaterbiodiversity.eu/metadb). Metadata were collected in the national project 'Development of biodiversity in floodplains' funded by the Federal Agency of Conservation (BfN). Four institutions were involved: Departement of Aquatic Ecology, University of Duisburg-Essen; Institute of Geography and Geoecology, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology; Floodplain Institute Neuburg, University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt; Department of Conservation Biology, Helmholtz Centre for Biological Research-UFZ.

Benthic invertebrates: Multihabitat-sampling according to Meier et al. (2006) was predominantly used. In some projects substrate-specific samplings were applied. In 4 projects light traps for sampling of adult, winged macro-invertebrates were installed. Aquatic (and terrestrial) molluscs: 'Biocoenometer'-method according to Mühlenberg (1993) and Krebs (1999), 'soil-grabber-method' according to Schwörbel (1994). Intensity and frequency of samplings differ strongly between projects. Adult dragon- and damselflies: Sight observations and dip net catches. Intensity and frequency of samplings differ strongly between projects.
