Latest version published by ICNF - Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e das Florestas on 22 February 2022 ICNF - Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e das Florestas
This dataset is the output of a national waterbird monitoring programme coordinated by ICNF that collects information on the number and distribution of waterbirds at wetland sites in Portugal and is part of the International Waterbird Census project (African-Eurasian Waterbird Census – Europe). The dataset consists of annual waterbird counts, undertaken from 1982 to 1999, of species encountered at wetlands and observed in all types of natural and man-made wetlands in mainland Portugal. In this dataset there is a record of 105 bird species, from 22 families and 13 orders (Accipitriformes, Anseriformes, Charadriiformes, Ciconiiformes, Falconiformes, Galliformes, Gruiformes, Otidiformes, Pelecaniformes, Phoenicopteriformes, Podicipediformes, Strigiformes, Suliformes).

Sampling Methods

Waterbird annual counts in natural and man-made wetlands in mainland Portugal.

Study Extent The geographic area considered Portugal Mainland. The species included are birds observed in wetland sites (Accipitriformes, Anseriformes, Charadriiformes, Ciconiiformes, Falconiformes, Galliformes, Gruiformes, Otidiformes, Pelecaniformes, Phoenicopteriformes, Podicipediformes, Strigiformes, Suliformes).
Quality Control In the preparation of the dataset for GBIF publication, data consistency was verified using OpenRefine.

Method step description:

  1. Preparation of the dataset for GBIF publication used as source the geographic layer in shape file format. The spatial layer and centroids were converted to geographic coordinates using WGS84 and WKT was determined for the polygons. The file was exported to a csv file and attributes reinterpreted to matching DwC standard terms.
