    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 the output of a national waterbird monitoring programme coordinated by ICNF that collects information on the number and distribution of waterbirds at wetland sites in Portugal and is part of the International Waterbird Census project (African-Eurasian Waterbird Census – Europe). The dataset consists of annual waterbird counts, undertaken from 2000 to 2013, of species regularly encountered at wetlands and observed in all types of natural and man-made wetlands in mainland Portugal. In this dataset there is a record of 84 waterbird species, 20 families and 11 orders (Accipitriformes, Anseriformes, Charadriiformes, Ciconiiformes, Gaviiformes, Gruiformes, Pelecaniformes, Phoenicopteriformes, Podicipediformes, Strigiformes, Suliformes).

    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.

    The Atlas of nesting birds from Portugal makes an inventory of 235 breeding species, from which 221 are native, and, among these, 205 with regular nesting activity. It covers a period from 1999 to 2005. The project "Atlas of the Birds that Nest in Portugal" aimed to know the current distribution of breeding species in Mainland Portugal and in the autonomous regions of Madeira and the Azores and to characterize 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 for bird species targeted by directed census, except Aquila adalberti, Aegypius monachus and Pterocles alchata whose location is confidential (includes marginal 10x10 km UTM squares); Other species - distribution data for the remaining species (does not include UTM 10x10 km marginal grids). The project involved the participation of ca. 500 volunteers, more than a dozen professional employees and various work teams in the organization. It is the result of a fundamental partnership with three other entities, namely the SPEA - 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 Natural Park of Madeira (PNM) and the Regional Directorate for the Environment of the Azores (DRA), entities responsible for the conservation of wild birds in the autonomous regions.
