The dataset of seagrasses distribution across the Mediterranean produced in the framework of MEDISEH derived from the compilation of published and unpublished information. For example literature search was made using mainly the ISI Web of Knowledge engine. At the same time a new search started from the “Bibliographic References” at the end of each paper. We amended the data set with our own unpublished data (grey literature). Moreover, we included data from reports of national and EU research projects and data networks. A major contribution to the improvement of our knowledge on seagrasses in the Mediterranean and especially Posidonia derived from the establishment of Natura 2000 network. meer

Most of collected data were only available on hard copy. This means that a lot of Posidonia (and other seagrasses) data distribution were in jpeg or .pdf format, or only, as description in a text. So, this kind of information had to be digitilized in order to associate it with a map and incorporate it in the GIS viewer. The final result was a shapefile with the exact position of seagrass, limits, extent, etc. The overall dataset has been separated into historical and current data. The current data are further divided into presence, absence and no data.
