This publication is based on the paper "Flora liquénica do Parque Natural da Serra de S. Mamede" published by Palmira Carvalho in 1997 on the journal Portugaliae Acta Biologica. It presents sampling event data of several taxon of lichens collected in 64 sampling stations at Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, Alentejo, Portugal. There are 1,593 occurrence records of lichens in this Natural Park. It presents two differente archives: a dataset of the events, with the description of the sampling sites; a dataset of the occurrences, with the lichen species in each site.
The composition of the lichenic epiphytic flora in the coastal region of Alentejo, which includes the area of the Sines industrial complex, has been updated through floristic surveys on various phorophytes, but in particular, olive and fig trees. The present results, which are the result of fieldwork carried out in 1997, were compared with those obtained in the studies carried out in 1983. A decrease in the floristic richness was verified, as a result of the degradation of habitats and an increase in the emission of poluents. It was also possible to establish the relationship between lichen diversity and various environmental factors, through the application of Co-inertia Analysis. This publication results in two datasets, an event table: where the sampling sites are described; and an occurrence table, which shows the lichen species found at each of these sites.
The Atlas of the Bats of continental Portugal project arose with the overall goal of updating the information on bat species, with the following specific objectives: (1) Mapping the current distribution of bat species in continental Portugal; (2) Feeding a geo-referenced database that allows easy and generalised access to the information; (3) Describing patterns of specific richness of chiropterans and (4) Making information available for research, planning and management applied to bat conservation. As complementary objectives, it was intended to: (1) Integrated in the 2011-2012 Year of the Bat campaign, contribute to the dissemination of the importance of bat conservation among the populations and all entities with responsibility in land management; and (2) Contribute to the mobilization and stimulation of professionals and others interested in issues related to chiropterans. The achievement of these objectives resulted from a great collective effort, which we value and intend to continue in the future. This is the only way to cope with the constant need to adjust and update the information in this Atlas, particularly for species that are difficult to identify or that will be subject to taxonomic revisions.
