Geographic Coverage

The Island of Ireland but forms a subset of a wider Great Britain and Ireland dataset - coverage varies from limited to intense. Precision ranges from British Isles (for some literature citation records) through country or county only to ten figure grid-references.

Methodology

Quality control

The Fungus Records Database of Britain and Ireland is a working database, in constant upgrade and improvement. Quality of data with regard to the presence of a species in any particular locality varies from 'high' where the record is based on material of known provenance to 'low' where a record is based on, for example, an unvouchered field observation. The degree of editing of the primary record varies from an initial check to ensure that the name of the species is spelt correctly through to examination of a voucher specimen to re-assess the original identification. Appropriate specialists must be consulted whenever there is any doubt about the presence or absence of a species in any particular locality. Records are made available 'as is' with no implied fitness for purpose

Method Steps

  1. Records in the FRDBI are from a variety of sources including field observations (the majority; some record sets from specific projects), literature citations and specimen label data. All records meeting a minimum criteria are included, no verification of the accuracy of the identification is carried out on database entry (doubtful records can be indicated at data entry or subsequently; misidentification can be indicated after data entry).
