Short summary
The Patos Lagoon estuary and adjacent marine coast (PLEA) has been a site of the Brazilian Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program since 1998. LTER-PLEA contributes information about the biota composition, distribution and abundance, and estuarine ecological processes. The LTER-PLEA database (8 datasets containing 6972 sampling events and records of 275 species) represents one of the most robust and longest databases of biological diversity in an estuarine coastal system of South America.
