title in English
European Seabirds at Sea - data collected by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO), Belgium
Description in English
The INBO Seabirds at Sea Database was established in 1992 in close collaboration with the European Seabird at Sea Database (ESAS). This dataset represents a subset of the INBO-database on seabird distribution holding information on the distribution of seabirds and marine mammals in north-west European marine areas with a focus on Belgian marine waters. The most recent version of this database contains records that were collected during 1992-2011. The data were collected using a standardised ESAS methodology. The Belgian Science Policy (BELSPO) and the Management Unit of the North Sea Mathematical Models and the Scheldt Estuary (MUMM) sponsored parts of the data collection. The data have been used to produce atlasses of seabird distrution, vulnerability maps and biological valuation maps. Subsequently, these data have been used for a wide variety of research purposes.
