    The publication of this document is related to the implementation of the Sectoral Plan of the Natura 2000 Network (PSRN2000). The PSRN2000 is an instrument of territorial management, which aims to keep species and habitats in a favorable conservation status and to safeguard and enhance the value of Special Protection Areas (SPA) and Sites of Community Importance (SCI) of the continental territory. In essence, it is an instrument to manage biodiversity. It is a Plan created at a macro-scale (1:100 000) for the continental territory, which characterizes natural and semi-natural habitats as well as the fauna and flora species present in SCIs and SPAs. It also defines strategical guidelines to manage the territory under these areas, taking into account the natural assets present in them. PSRN2000 links Public Entities, offering strategical guidelines and norms for the Local and Central Administration. It falls under the Article 8.º from the Decree-Law n.º 140/99, of 24 April, as amended by Decree-Law n.º 49/2005 of 24/4, having been approved in 2008, with the publication of the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers n.º 115-A/2008, of 21 July. The present data is a function of the type of information available for each of the species, specifically with regards to the mapping scale and the degree of geographical coverage. It contains occurrence data for fauna belonging to 2 phyla, 4 classes, 10 orders, 16 families, 20 genera and 24 species.

    This dataset is based on a National Report on the progress and implementation of the Habitats Directive in Portugal, concerning the 2013-2018 period. It originates from a project performed periodically (every 6 years) that aims to permit an adequate assessment of the progress, via the Natura 2000 Network, towards the goals of the Habitats Directive. This national reports describes conservation status for flora and fauna species in three biogeographic regions (Atlantic, Macaronesian and Mediterranean) and two marine regions (Atlantic and Macaronesian). It contains occurrence data for fauna and flora belonging to 3 kingdoms, 7 phyla, 16 classes, 52 orders, 105 families, 192 genera and 277 species.

    The Atlas of breeding birds of Portugal makes an inventory of all 235 breeding species, from which 221 are native species, and 205 presenting a regular breeding activity. The Atlas covers a period from 1999 to 2005. The project "Atlas of breeding Birds of Portugal" aimed to know the current distribution of breeding species in Continental Portugal and in the autonomous regions of Madeira and the Azores. It pretended also to characterize the abundance, when possible, of national populations of these species, during the period of 1999 to 2005. This dataset comprised two layers of information: Directed Census - Distribution data of birds target-species by directed census, except for Aquila adalberti, Aegypius monachus and Pterocles alchata whose location is confidential (includes marginal 10x10 km UTM grids); Other species - distribution data for the remaining species (excluding UTM 10x10 km marginal grids). The project involved the participation of ca. 500 volunteers, more than a dozen professional collaborators and various working teams. The project results from a fundamental partnership with three other entities, namely the SPEA – Sociedade Portuguesa para o Estudo das Aves (Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds, a non-governmental association that works for the conservation of birds and their habitats in Portugal and which brings together numerous members interested in this faunal group); the Parque Natural da Madeira (PNM, Madeira Natural Park), and the Direção Regional do Ambiente dos Açores (DRA, Regional Environment Directorate of the Azores), entities responsible for the conservation of wild birds in the autonomous regions. The Atlas contains occurrence data for breeding birds belonging to 20 orders, 58 families, 115 genus, and 180 species.

    This dataset contains geographic information referring to the collection and processing of data provided by persons and entities that carry out bird ringing and recapture activities in Portugal, centralising the information necessary to meet the requests of counterpart centres in other countries, particularly European ones through the European Union for Bird Ringing (EURING), the supranational body coordinating the activities carried out by the different ringing centres in the countries of Europe.

    The Diretiva Aves (Birds Directive, Council Directive on the conservation of wild birds 79/409/EEC) was implemented in 1979. This Directive frames the conservation and management of wild birds in Europe and human interactions with this group. The Diretiva Aves sets broad objectives and includes the identification and classification of Zonas de Protecção Especial (ZPE) (Special Protection Areas - SPAs) for the rarest and most vulnerable species, listed in Annex I, as well as to all migratory species (not listed in Annex I) regularly occurring in the European territory. These species should be subject to special conservation measures concerning their habitat, to ensure survival and reproduction in their area of distribution, with special importance to the protection of wetlands and particularly those of international importance. The Article 12 of the Diretiva Aves requires to all Member States to forward to the Commission, every three years, a report on the implementation of national provisions taken under the Directive. Nevertheless, the Commission and all Member States have agreed to forward this report, considering its content and reporting cycle, in the same year as the report drawn up pursuant to Article 17 of the Diretiva Habitats (Habitats Directive, Council Directive on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora 92/43/EEC), which requires more detailed information every six years. The preparation of this report follows the approved European Union format, which includes a general report on the implementation of the Diretiva Aves (Annex I), and specific reports (Annex II), containing cartographic components (in GIS format) with 10 km X 10 km grids relative to the areas of distribution of each reported species.
