About

What does this map show?

Geographic Coverage

The Island of Ireland. This is a subset of the larger British Bryological Society database for the wider Britain & Ireland geographic region.

Methodology

Quality control

The data were validated against known vice-county distributions of the species, and (for critical species) by expert examination of specimens.

Method Steps

  1. Electronic data, mainly provided as spreadsheets. Prior to about 2005, most data were received on record cards, which were typed up at the UK's Biological Records Centre. The balance is now strongly in favour of electronic submission.
