Latest version published by EDP - Energias de Portugal on Jan 5, 2021 EDP - Energias de Portugal

The dataset contains records of vascular plants 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, to assess the temporal dynamics of selected species of conservation concern, before and after the dams implantation. This dataset includes results of surveys made in and around the area affected by the dams, from May 2010 to August 2014. Plant inventories were made along the lower Sabor river valley and in some tributaries, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstream, in a variable number of 1x1 km squares, depending on the year (range: 100-142).

Data Records

Geographic Coverage

Data were collected along the lower Sabor river valley and its main tributaries, in a variable number of sampling locations (1x1 km squares) representative of the local distribution areas of the selected species of conservation concern, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstream, in the municipalities of Torre de Moncorvo, Alfândega da Fé, Mogadouro and Macedo de Cavaleiros.

Project Data

The dataset contains records of vascular plants 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, to assess the temporal dynamics of selected species of conservation relevance, before and after the dams implantation. This dataset includes results of surveys made in and around the area affected by the dams, from May 2010 to August 2014. Plant inventories were made along the lower Sabor river valley and in some tributaries, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstreamn, in a variable number of 1x1 km squares depending on the year (range: 136-142). The occurrence of the target species was documented through 2378 observations of occurrence of 29 species or infra-specific taxa. The most common species (>100 occurrences) were Festuca duriotagana (641 occurrences), Buxus sempervirens (620), Ruscus aculeatus (324) and Holcus annus duriensis (236).

Title EDP Baixo Sabor: Construction and Reservoir Filling Phases – Vascular Flora and Habitats: species of conservation concern (RELAPE) - [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 selected species of conservation concern in the lower Sabor river valley, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstream.
Design Description The objective of the study was to follow the temporal dynamics of selected species of conservation concern previously identified in the Baseline studies, in areas directly or indirectly affected by the Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Dams, during the construction and the reservoir filling periods (2010-2014). Sampling was performed in 1x1 km squares distributed in the study area.

Sampling Methods

Sampling was designed to cover the whole valley of the lower Sabor river. Plant inventories were performed at each 1x1 km square, one per season (spring, summer, autumn and winter), encompassing between 10-12 work-days per season. Each selected 1x1 km square was exhaustively surveyed for the presence of any of the target species. Only records of presence/absence of each species were included in this dataset. Most species were identified “in loco” although, in some cases, samples were collected to further identification in the laboratory. The nomenclature is mostly in accordance with Flora Ibérica (Castroviejo et al., 1986-2009) for the species in the volumes already published and for Nova Flora de Portugal (Franco, 1971, 1984; Franco & Rocha Afonso, 1994, 1998 and 2003) for the remaining species.

Study Extent The data were collected in a variable number of 1x1 km squares (range: 136-142, depending on the year and/or season) in the lower Sabor river valley, 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. In some cases the synonymy was changed since the sampling events, so a specific collumn with the accepted synonimy was added to reflect this.
