Large Branchiopoda occurrence data in the Northern Western Ghats, India

Latest version published by BioFresh on Feb 25, 2019 BioFresh

The field data provide species distribution data of a freshwater invertebrate group called large branchiopods from freshwater habitats from one of the megadiverse regions of the world, Western Ghats of India. The data have been collected from 2009 until 2017 at 45 localities. Qualitative representative sampling was carried out using a hand net having a mesh size of 150 µm. A total of 12 species including three new endemic species and two distinct populations of large branchiopods were observed in the sampled localities (Schwentner et al. 2012; Rogers and Padhye 2014; Padhye and Ghate 2016; Padhye et al. 2018; Modak et al. in press). These habitat data, therefore, are important in the context of biodiversity conservation planning and management in general. Detailed metadata can be found in the Freshwater Metadatabase (http://data.freshwaterbiodiversity.eu/metadb/bf_mdb_view.php?entryID=FWM_21) and in the Freshwater Metadata Journal (http://data.freshwaterbiodiversity.eu/metadb/showfmjarticle.php?dbcode=FWM_21).

Sampling Methods

The sampling strategy was based on the type of habitat sampled. Pools were sampled such that all the area was sampled representatively while sampling was carried out from littoral regions of water reservoirs and rivers. A qualitative representative sampling of each habitat was carried out using a hand net having a mesh of 150 micrometers. Samples were immediately preserved in 8% formalin in the field.

Study Extent Sampling frequency varied depending on the type of habitat sampled. Temporary pools were sampled mostly during or immediately after Monsoon season while habitats like rivers were sampled intermittently.
