"Contrat de Rivière - RIPARIAS: detection and management of aquatic invasive alien species" is a presence/absence dataset focusing on freshwater invasive alien species in the Senne basin, since spring 2021.
data are derived from the monitoring of a set of managed or surveilled water points (ponds, rivers) where the progress/elimination of a set of invasive species is followed up.
The dataset includes absence records and should be considered with caution. Each event corresponds to a complete survey of the site in search of a set of targeted IAS.
The dataset also include had hoc presence observations of other introduced or native species that are made on site.
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 1,240 records.
1 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.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

The monitoring mostly targets a specific list of freshwater invasive alien species (detailed below). Absence records are only available for these target species (as their search is part of the protocol). However, had hoc observations of other aquatic species - introduced or native - are also included in the dataset.

With the LIFE RIPARIAS project, Belgian authorities pool their resources together to optimize the management of invasive alien species in river areas and ponds across regional borders.
|Title||LIFE RIPARIAS - Reaching Integrated and Prompt Action in Response to Invasive Alien Species|
|Funding||LIFE Programme of the European Union - multiple partner institutions from Belgium|
The personnel involved in the project:
During the visits, the entire site is prospected looking for a set of target IAS. The effort is adapted to the size of the site. For the search of invasive crayfish, traps are also set.
|Study Extent||freshwater managed or surveilled sites(ponds rivers) within the Senne river basin, from spring 2021 to present.|
Method step description:
- Site prospection by officers in the RIPARIAS framework
- Enconding observations using Fulcrum
- Export and generate Darwin Core files for GBIF
