  • The map shows the seabed habitat types and associated benthic communities distribution in the Luiz Saldanha Marine Park, a Marine Protected Area in the Natural Park of Arrábida (Natura 2000 site), located on the West coast of mainland Portugal. Furthermore, an adjacent zone to the Park, to a depth of 100 m, is included. Physical and biological datasets were combined aiming at matching the habitat classes defined in the EUNIS classification. Literature and survey data were included. The latter were collected in the framework of the LIFE project Biomares with the primary purpose of obtaining information on the seabed habitats across the Park and of former research projects and contracts carried out both in the Park area and adjacent zone by the IPMA (former IPIMAR) team.
