The dataset contains Phytoplankton records of samples collected at Baixo Sabor reservoir during the first year of the Ecology Monitoring Program (PME) of Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Scheme, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Samples were collected in the deeper zone of the reservoir, at a fixed station 1300 m upstream of the dam, in 6 campaigns carried out between March and October of 2016. The targeted taxa were phytoplankton species, included as biological quality element for ecological quality in the framework of the EU’s Water Directive.

Project Data

The dataset contains Phytoplankton records of samples collected at Baixo Sabor reservoir during the first year of the Ecology Monitoring Program (PME) of Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Scheme, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Samples were collected in the deeper zone of the reservoir, at a fixed station 1300 m upstream of the dam, in 6 campaigns carried out between March and October of 2016. The targeted taxa were phytoplankton species, included as biological quality element for ecological quality in the framework of the EU’s Water Directive. A total of 1849 taxa records were obtained corresponding to 31 species and 11 genera. The most abundant species (>100 records) were Fragilaris crotonensis (phylum Ochropyta, class Bacillariophyceae, order Fragilariales) (198 records), Chroomonas acuta (Cryptophyta, Cryptophyceae, Pyrenomonadales) (167), Woronichinia naegeliana (Cyanobacteria, Cyanophyceae, Chroococcales) (142) and Eudorina unicocca (Chlorophyta, Chlorophyceae, Volvocales) (119), and the genera Anabaena (Cyanobacteria, Cyanophyceae, Nostocales) (122) and Cryptomonas (Cryptophyta, Cryptophyceae, Cryptomonadales) (121).

Sampling Methods

Sampling followed the procedures defined by the Portuguese National Water Authority in the protocol for sampling and analysis of phytoplankton quality element under the Water Framework Directive. In each sampling campaign, a two-step procedure was adopted. First (a) a water column profile for temperature and dissolved oxygen was perform using a multiparametric probe (b) the water transparency was measure using a Secchi disk (Secchi depth), and (c) the depth of the euphotic zone was estimated (2.5 x the Secchi Depth). Second, (a) water samples were collected, using an integrated water sampling device (hydrobios), from the surface to euphotic zone maximum depth; (b) samples were preserved in loco with Alkaline Lugol’s solution and transported in 48 hours to the laboratory. The samples were stored in a dark and cold place (1º to 4ºC) for a maximum period of 6 months. They were periodically examined and recompleted with Alkaline Lugol’s solution, whenever needed. In the lab, the analysis for identification (to the lower possible taxonomic level), quantification (cells/mL) and biovolume (mm3/m3) were carried out using sedimentation chambers and an inverted microscope (Utermöhl technique), as described in EN 15204:2006 (Water quality - Guidance standard on the enumeration of phytoplankton using inverted microscopy (Utermöhl technique)) and EN 16695:2015 (Water quality - Guidance on the estimation of phytoplankton biovolume).

Study Extent The study was carried out in one sampling station, 1300 m upstream of the dam, in the deepest zone of the Baixo Sabor reservoir. Six sampling campaigns took place between 3 March and 22 November 2016, covering winter, spring, summer (3 samples) and autumn.
Quality Control Sampling method and laboratory identification, quantification and biovolume estimation are accredited (accreditation certificate and technical annex L0216) by Instituto Português de Acreditação (IPAC), as demanded by ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories). All individuals were identified by experts with a deep knowledge of Phytoplankton taxonomy.
