EDP Baixo Sabor: Construction and Reservoir Filling Phases – Bonneli’s Eagle prey species: Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) [2010-2014]

Latest version published by EDP - Energias de Portugal on Mar 23, 2020 EDP - Energias de Portugal

The dataset contains records of a key prey species of Bonelli’s Eagle (Aquila fasciata) and other large birds of prey, the Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) (Mammalia, Lagomorpha), collected in the lower valley of River Sabor (NE Portugal), in the scope of the long-term Ecological Monitoring Program (PME) of the Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Dams (AHBS), promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. This dataset includes results of line transects performed each season (winter, spring, summer and autumn), in the known territories of the Bonelli's Eagle in the lower Sabor river valley, from February 2010 to September 2014. Data consists of presence signs (scats, latrines) recorded per transect surveyed.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 152 records. 1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Title EDP Baixo Sabor: Construction and Reservoir Filling Phases – Bonneli’s Eagle prey species: Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) [2010-2014]
Identifier EDP Biodiversity Data
Funding The work was funded by EDP - Energias de Portugal, S.A.
Study Area Description The study was conducted in part of the sub-basin of river Sabor affected by the Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Dam. The sampling was centered in suitable rabbit habitats in all known territories of the Bonelli's Eagle in the of lower Sabor river valley and its tributaries, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstream.
Design Description The objective of the study was to monitor changes in the abundances of a key prey species (Rabbit) for the Bonelli's Eagle and other birds of prey, in the area of the Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Dam, from the initial and intermediate phases of the construction to the reservoir filling period (2010-2014).

Sampling Methods

The dataset includes systematic observations collected in 8 transects located in the 4 territories of the Bonelli's Eagle located in the lower Sabor river valley (2 transects in each territory). Two 500-meter transects were surveyed by an observer moving slowly and recording all signs of presence (latrines, scattered droppings and burrows) on both sides of the transect. The figures presented, which measures the relative abundance of the target species, refer only to the number of latrines detected per transect.

Study Extent The data were collected within a 5-km buffer around the the lower river Sabor and its main tributaries, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstream, in the municipalities of Torre de Moncorvo, Alfândega da Fé, Mogadouro and Macedo de Cavaleiros.
Quality Control All individual identifications were performed by qualified technicians
