This dataset contains information on species presence in and at lakes in Northern Germany. Most of the lakes are gravel pit lakes. All lakes that contain "fish data" only are natural lakes (N=6). Depending on lake and biological taxa, lakes were sampled several times. This dataset contains information on species presence from the first sampling event at each lake to be representative of a roughly equal sampling efforts between the lakes. The complete database with all sampling events is available via www.fred.igb-berlin.de
