    The dataset contains records of Dragonflies and Damselflies (Odonata) collected in the lower valley of the River Tua, and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-2017) of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between June 2011 and August 2017 during field visits to 33 sampling points with favorable habitats on the area of the lower Tua valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz Tua dam, and in a small stream of the Douro basin. The occurrence for the both groups was recorded when individuals were seen or captured heard around the point in a 15-minute census.

    The dataset contains records of large mammals (Mammalia) 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 between June 2011 and August 2017 in up to 47 transects established in favorable habitats on the area of the lower Tua river valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz-Tua dam. The presence of individuals and the species identification were obtained through indirect signs (scats, latrines, footprints).

    The dataset contains records of Butterflies (Lepidoptera) collected in the lower valley of the River Tua, and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-2017) of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between July 2014 and August 2017 during field visits to 33 sampling transects with favorable habitats on the area of the lower Tua valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz Tua dam, and in a small stream of the Douro basin. The occurrence of the target species was recorded when individuals were seen or captured in the selected transects.

    The dataset contains records of Cabrera vole (Microtus cabrerae, Cricetidae) and other Microtus spp. collected in a buffer of 2 km around the lower valley of the River Tua, 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 between April 2012 and May 2017 during field visits to 55 known or presumed colonies of this species in the area of the lower Tua valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz Tua dam. The occurrence of the species was assessed through the observation of characteristic evidences of presence (scats, trails, latrines, heaps of grass clippings) in plots with favorable habitat. The identification of the scats attributed to the genus Microtus was assessed with molecular analysis.

    The dataset contains records of Pyrenean desman (Galemys pyrenaicus, Mammalia) collected in the Rivers Tua and Douro sub-basins and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-17) of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between June 2011 and May 2017 during field visits to up to 30 sampling transects in the riverbeds of the selected water lines with favorable habitats for the species. The presence of individuals was recorded by direct observation of signs (scats and/or footprints).

    The dataset contains records of reptiles (Reptilia) collected in the lower valley of the River Tua, and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-2017) of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between July 2011 and August 2017 during field visits to 24 (2011-2014) or 28 (2014-2017) sampling transects with favorable habitats, in 24 2x2 km UTM squares in the area of the lower Tua valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz Tua dam. The presence of individuals was recorded by direct observation.

    The dataset contains records of otter (Lutra lutra, Mammalia) collected in the Rivers Tua and Douro sub-basins and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-17) of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between June 2011 and July 2017 during field visits to 12 sampling transects in the riverbeds of the selected water lines with favorable habitats in the river Tua sub-basin. The presence of individuals was recorded by direct observation of signs (scats and/or footprints).

  • Categories  

    The dataset contains records of the Black Wheatear (Oenanthe leucura, Aves) and other terrestrial birds collected in an area with suitable habitat for the species in the lower Tua valley and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-12) of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected in the winter of 2011 and in the spring of 2012, during field visits to seven transects distributed in the sampling area. All observations were made with binoculars and/or telescopes.

    The dataset contains records of large mammals (Mammalia) 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 between June and August 2011 in 24 transects established in favorable habitats on the area of the lower Tua river valley directly or indirectly affected by the Foz-Tua dam. The presence of individuals and the species identification were obtained through direct observations, with torch lights.

    The dataset contains records of bats (Chiroptera) collected in the lower valley of River Tua. Data were collected in the scope of the Ecological Monitoring Program (PME) and Program of Mitigation/Compensation Measures (PMC) of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected from August 2011 to October 2017 during field visits to 57 points located in suitable foraging habitats for bats, within a 5-km radius buffer around the lower valley of River Tua. The presence and identity of the bat species were assessed by acoustic sampling of the echo-location calls emitted in fligth. The records include taxa identified at the species, genus, family or order level, as well as several potential species present in 23 acoustic “species complexes”.
