    The dataset contains records of amphibians (Amphibia) collected in the lower valley of the River Tua and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-2017) of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected in the autumn (November) of 2012-2016, during field visits to eight sampling transects located in favourable habitats within a 5-km radius buffer around the Tua valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz-Tua dam and in a control area in the Douro sub-basin (Ferradosa stream). The presence of individuals was assessed through direct observation, with the aid of torches.
