    The dataset contains records of terrestrial vertebrates (Amphibians, Reptiles and Macromammals) colected in the lower Tua river and included in the Baseline Studies of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between May and September 2006, during field visits to nine 5km-sections of the river Tua, between the mouth and the village of Cachão, 45 km upstream. The presence of taxa belonging to the target groups (individuals and/or evidence of occurrence, like scats or footprints) was recorded. Twenty-eight taxa were identified, 26 to the species rank (5 amphibians, 12 reptiles and 9 mammals), and two to the genus rank (1 amphibian and 1 mammal).
