Methodology

Quality control

Records are from experienced recorders, are usually backed up with photographic evidence or specimens and are often validated by taxonomic experts. Some sightings of important species seen by volunteers and confirmed by expert recorders/taxonomists are included. All records have been QA'd including plotting locations.

Method Steps
