Description

The Señorío de Bértiz National Park (Navarra, Spain) is part of a research project that studies the impact of climate change in well-preserved temperate forests. As part of this research, fish population of the Suspiro stream, that flows trhough the park, is analysed among other environmental variables. This dataset contains information of occurrence of fish species found in this stream.

Geographic Coverage

All specimens were collected in the Suspiro stream, in Señorío de Bértiz National Park (Spain). This stream is a tributary of the Bidasoa river that flows into the Atlantic sea, in the Bay of Biscay.

Bounding Coordinates South West [43.13, -1.64], North East [43.16, -1.6]

Taxonomic Coverage

All specimens were identified to the species level using the Guide to Freshwater Fish of Britain and Europe (Maitland P. S. & Linsell K., 1977). Three species belonging to three different families (Angullidae, Cottidae and Salmonidae) were recorded. In number of individuals, the most abundant family is Salmonidae (Salmo trutta), with the 73% of the captures. Only two specimens of Anguilla anguilla (Anguillidae) were captured. The remaining species, Cottus aturi, represents the 26% of the captures.

Species Anguilla anguilla (Eel), Salmo trutta (Brown trout), Cottus aturi (Adour sculpin)

Temporal Coverage

Living Time Period 2007-2011, 2013-present

Project Data

This project aims to monitor alterations in the environment caused by climate change using Señorío de Bértiz National Park as the area of study. Among other environmental variables, the project analyses fish populations of the Suspiro stream.

Title Estudios de monitorización integrada en una Cuenca forestal del Pirineo
Funding Fundación Universidad de Navarra (Proyecto Especial PIUNA, 2010-2012).
Study Area Description The Suspiro stream is a well-preserved, small mountain river that flows through the Señorío de Bértiz National Park. The vegetation of the study area is dominated by the beech.

Sampling Methods

The main sampling method was electric fishing, using a back-pack electrofishing unit (Hans Grassl modelo IG200/2). The captured individuals were sedated with 2-phenoxyethanol, identified, counted and measured (total length in mm and weight). Then, fish were returned to the river. Species identification was performed by R. Miranda.

Study Extent The specimens were captured in one location of the Suspiro stream (Señorío de Bértiz National Park), annually since 2007 to 2015 (except 2012) and is still ongoing.
Quality Control Species identification was performed by R. Miranda using suitable literature (Maitland & Linsell 1977) and scientific names were validated using the W. N. Eschmeyer’s Catalog of Fishes (Eschmeyer 2014). Specimens were returned to the river. Darwin test software (v3.3 Ortega-Maqueda and Pando 2008) was used to check out possible mistakes in the coordinates, characters and the format of dates of the samplings.

Method step description:

  1. Specimens were sampled following the procedure described in the Sampling description section. The individuals were identified, measured and released. Field data was revised, digitalised and incorporated to the MZNA database (Zootron v4.5, Ariño 1991). The dataset was exported to DarwinCore v1.4 format and revised to correct errors to adequate it to DarwinCore standars. Metadata information was added and the Darwin Core Archive was incorporated to the Spanish GBIF IPT.

Additional Metadata

The Museum of Zoology (MZNA) was founded in 1980 as a repository of zoological materials originating from research and instructional activities of the department of Environmental Biology (proviously known as the department of Zoology and Ecology) of the University of Navarra. Nowadays MZNA store more than two millions specimens in its climate-controlled facilities. The Museum is a Data Provider for the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) and is an Affiliate to the International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN). The Museum is also in charge of the curation and management of the Natural History Collections of the School of Science of the University of Navarra (Spain). MZNA attends to reserchers around the world, make loans and accepts deposits.

Purpose The aim of the present data set is to provide all information of the records of freshwater fishes gathered in the long term monitoring program performed in the Señoría de Bértiz National Park (Navarra, Spain). All the samplings take place in the Susprio stream.
Maintenance Description This is an open dataset. The project is still active and new sampling campaigns are programmed. New versions of the dataset will be published when required.
