  • The dataset contains abundance and body size data of benthic macroinvertebrates collected in the river Tirso (Sardinia, Italy) during the years 1998-1999. Data refer to 143 taxa and 48248 individuals.

  • The dataset contains taxonomic and body size data of the benthic macroinvertebrate communities collected in the hydrographic basin of Flumini Mannu - Cixerri (Sardinia, Italy) during the years 1992-1993. Sampling sites were located along two main basins Flumini Mannu and Cixerri, and other smaller coastal basins. Data refer to 98 taxa and 14566 individuals.

  • The dataset contains taxonomic and morphological data of the macroinvertebrates community of a Nationally designated area in South Italy (Brindisi, Apulia). Data refer to 19504 individuals.

  • The dataset is part of a Master degree study on the organization of phytoplankton communities in the port of Otranto (Apulia Region, Italy). Taxonomic and morphological phytoplankton data are collected.

  • The dataset contains abundance and body size data of the benthic macroinvertebrates community of Torre Guaceto (Apulia, Italy). Data refer to 34 taxa and 11342 individuals.

  • The dataset contains an updated checklist of the terrestrial, freshwater, and marine species of Metazoa present in Italy; the first version of the dataset includes > 27000 species and subspecies. For each species, an updated taxonomic classification and the currently accepted Linnean binomen and authorship is given, accompanied by distributional data (occurrence in 3 terrestrial and 9 marine macroregions, and optionally occurrence in the administrative Italian regions and neighbouring areas abroad). Endemics and alien species are indicated. The dataset is completed by taxonomic and distributional notes including pertinent literature and synonymies.

  • This dataset provides broad information on taxonomic and morphological (shape, linear dimensions, biovolume, cell abundance, cell size) structure of phytoplankton communities, in an impacted marine coastal area. The study was conducted in order to understand the role of anthropogenic pollution on phytoplankton community. For this reason, 3 different areas, along a pollution gradient, were considering. Data were collected at different spatial and temporal scales, in marine ecosystems, located in South Adriatic Sea, close to an industrial area and a marine protected area, in Brindisi, along Salento Peninsula (Puglia region, Italy).

  • The dataset provides data on the flora and fauna of the Natura 2000 sites in Apulia, Italy. The dataset is a collection of bibliographic data on the presence of species of fauna and flora belonging to the red lists and not present in Natura 2000 sites. The data was collected considering everything that has been published locally, regionally and nationally. This research included not only data included in the literature but also to the so-called "gray literature". For this research were consulted articles published in local magazines, dissertations, brochures and data published in journals of higher knowledge.

  • Phytoplankton composition and size distribution in the Lago Maggiore (Italy) was analysed in detail measuring the main morphological parameters of the algal cells. This data set allowed to evaluate the morphological plasticity of many species across the seasonal succession.

  • The dataset is part of a Master degree thesis titled “Evaluation of transitional coastal enviroment health status: Torre Guaceto”. The dataset includes taxonomic and morphological data of phytoplankton organisms collected in Torre Guaceto (Apulia, Italy), a marine protected area, located 15 km to the North of Brindisi. Torre Guaceto is a Site of Community Importance (SIC) and Special Protected Area.
