Latest version published by Hellenic Center for Marine Research on Jan 30, 2023 Hellenic Center for Marine Research

This is a historical dataset that forms part of the "Report on the Danish Oceanographical Expeditions 1908-1910 to the Mediterranean and adjacent seas". It includes data for the fish of the genus Lepadogaster sampled from several sites of the North Atlantic Ocean, near the English and French coasts and the Strait of Gibraltar during the years 1904-1910. The infromation extraction was based on the Table 1 of the publication and included abundance data and metadata of location, date, depth and the sampling effort. Additional information, such as the life stage, was extracted from the main text of the publication. The dataset was curated by the citizen scientists of the Zooniverse platform within the efforts of incorporating citizen science in the management of historical datasets of EMODnet Biology project. Standard quality control steps followed after this process.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 30 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Geographic Coverage

The samples were taken from regions of the North Atlantic Ocean and more specifically from Northern Scotland and Eastern Scotland, the English Channel, the French coasts and the Strait of Gibraltar. The coordinates of the sampling sites were also provided in the publication.

Bounding Coordinates South West [32.843, -12.656], North East [59.889, 3.691]

Taxonomic Coverage

The dataset regards the Lepadogaster genus. In the original publication it is stated: "It is certain that they all belong to the group of Lepadogaster with short dorsal and fins, i.e. with less than nine rays (L. bimaculatus and microcephalus) but the alteration of pigmentation and the lack of data on the embryonic characteristics of the two species prevent us for the moment from going further." Two individuals of the species Lepadogaster candolii Risso, 1810 are also reported but they are not included in the Table 1 of the publication so they were not included in the dataset.

Genus  Lepadogaster
Species  Lepadogaster bimaculatus,  Lepadogaster microcephalus

Sampling Methods

The sampling instrument was a Petersen surface trawl. It was provided with several lengths of cable thrown into the sea so the depth of the sampling varied according to this length.

Study Extent The samples were taken from regions of the North Atlantic Ocean and more specifically from North Scotland, the English Channel and the Strait of Gibraltar. The coordinates of the sampling sites were also provided in the publication.
