Methodology

Quality control

Data do not have comprehensive geographic or taxonomic coverage. They may not have been reassessed in light of recent taxonomic splits or aggregations, and should be checked against original sources if there is doubt. Records of Triturus helveticus and T. vulgaris are currently being reassessed in the light of recent finds. Records of these which cannot be confidently assigned to species are listed under the genus, and a note made in the Comment of the original reported determination. Records of Pipistrellus pipistrellus from before the split are listed under the genus only, and subsequent records are only assigned to species if confirmed by a specimen or bat detector. HBRG endeavours to achieve maximum accuracy in our data. Any errors of which we are aware are listed with corrections in the file www.hbrg.org.uk/Dataset/Errors_HBRG_NBN_Atlas_datasets.xlsx Records of Pipistrellus pipistrellus from before the split are listed under the genus only, and subsequent records are only assigned to species if confirmed by a specimen or bat detector..
