Benthic fauna collected in the Arrábida Marine Protected Area (SW Portugal) from 2007 to 2009

Latest version published by IPMA - Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera on Aug 9, 2018 IPMA - Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera

The dataset provides a quantitative list of the benthic macrofauna taxa, identified to species level, which was collected from soft sediments in the Prof. Luiz Saldanha Marine Park (Arrábida, SW Portugal) between 2007 and 2009, at depths ranging from 10 to 100 m, aiming at describing community structure and distribution as well as classifying and mapping benthic habitats according to the EUNIS system.

The data provided were produced in the framework of the research project BIOMARES (LIFE06 NAT/P/000192) - Restoration and Management of Biodiversity in the Marine Park Site Arrábida Espichel (PTCON0010), carried out to restore the seagrass meadows in the marine park, as well as to assess its the benthic biodiversity.

Sampling Methods

The samples were collected with a Smith-McIntyre grab (sampling area: 0,1 m2)

Study Extent The samples were collected in georeferenced sites in the Arrábida Marine Protected Area during 3 dedicated sampling surveys carried out in July 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Method step description:

  1. In each site three grab samples were collected (two for faunal analysis and one for sediment grain size and organic matter analysis).
