Author(s)

Cristina Trigal & Margarita Fernández-Aláez

Abstract

This database contains the phytoplankton, zooplankton and macroinvertebrate data collected in 31 ponds in northwest Spain in 2003 and 2004. Macroinvertebrate samples were collected with a pond-net following a time-limited sampling, and were identified to genus level. Phytoplankton and zooplankton were analysed from composite water samples collected with a tube sampler at random points along a transect perpendicular to the main axis of the pond. Phytoplankton and zooplankton were identified to species level. In addition, the database contains information on physico-chemical parameters measured at the ponds. The data were collected during two projects financed by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology (REN 2003-03718/ HID) and the Regional Government of Castilla y Leon (LE33/03).
