Abundance, biomass and elemental composition (CNP) of consumers in the Hampshire Avon [Macronutrient Cycling]

The dataset contains measurements of the annual average abundance, biomass and elemental composition (C, N, P) of consumers (fish and invertebrates) in six rivers within sub-catchments of the Hampshire Avon of contrasting geology (clay, sand, chalk).

Provenance & quality

All data were generated by the authors. All individuals identifying invertebrates had over 10 years of experience and hold the Natural History Museum IdQ EO62 Identification of Freshwater Macroinvertebrate Species. All data produced were checked for errors before data was accepted. As chemical data were generated, checks were made to ensure accuracy (certified reference materials) and precision (repeat measurements) were within accepted tolerance limits. We also ensured measured values fit within those of calibration standards and, if necessary, re-analysed samples diluted to fall within the calibration range. For data generated via mass spectrometry, beam areas of all measured mass-to-charge ratios were corrected for drift offline using control standards. All data were checked to ensure reported values were above the detection limit of the method. All calculations were checked for errors before data was accepted.
