Collection of freshwater invertebrates from ponds in East Falkland, 2017

The dataset is an excel file and comprises data that were collected in East Falklands Island during spring 2017. Ponds and lakes closed to the road were checked for sampling. The fieldwork area went from North Arm to Port Louis. A water sample at each inland water bodies was collected in order to find Boeckella spp. for phylogenetics purposes. The dataset records GPS coordinates of the locations where invertebrates were present.

Lineage We took samples from ponds and lakes that we actually could see any invertebrate (e.g ostracods, copepods, chironomid larvae, etc). We used a zooplancton net to filter excess of water and plastic vials to transport the sample. We cleaned our net every time that we sampled. Since I used the samples for genetics I fixed them with ethanol at the laboratory.
