The Qinghai Lake Basin is located in the northeastern part of the Tibetan Plateau, it is a gene pool of bird species in the Tibetan Plateau, as well as one of the typical areas of the plateau ecosystem. The authors conducted post-breeding monitoring of waterbirds at 26 sample sites in the basin in August 2021 and August 2022. The dataset includes: (1) location data of 26 monitoring sample sites; (2) basic information of waterbird monitoring areas; (3) late breeding monitoring data of waterbirds in Qinghai Lake Basin; (4) dominant species assessment of waterbirds; (5) photos of waterbirds. The dataset is archived in .xlsx, .shp, .jpg and .docx formats, and consists of 16 data files with 19.4 MB (Compressed into 1 file with 19.3 MB).Browse
