Dataset specification

  • Title: BioBasis Nuuk - Lakes - Vegetation in lakes
  • Description: Coverage of submerged vegetation in the two monitoring lakes in Kobbefjord. Approx. 150 points are monitored in each lake and the coverage of Water starwort and moss is determined on a scale from 0-5. For further details, please refer to the newest BioBasis manual available at the website. Lakes:Lakes BioBasis Nuuk:The BioBasis programme monitors the dynamics of organisms and biological processes in the terrestrial and limnic ecosystems at Zackenberg and Nuuk. The BioBasis programme plays a central role in the development and implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme (CBMP) http://www.caff.is/monitoring across the Arctic.
