Stonefly (Plecoptera) Data for Great Britain for 1955-2005
Stonefly records compiled largely from country agency samples of river invertebrates together with casual records from amateur recorders. There are no plans for an atlas at present.
The dataset is comprised of four surveys:
- Stonefly records from the Environment Agency collated by David Pryce (~37000 records from England and Wales)
- Casual and Malaise Trap records collated by David Pryce (~1000 records from Wales, Scotland and Western England)
- Brachyptera putata records from Scotland (~100 records from David Pryce)
- Incidental records collected during Mayfly recording from Craig Macadam (<100 records)
The dataset consists of four surveys which between them cover most of England, Scotland and Wales. Overall recording is patchy in the East of England.
Primarily water quality sampling and taxonomic or ecological research.
Much identification has been carried out by freshwater specialists from the Environment Agency. All data supplied to the Scheme has been validated by the Scheme organiser.
The majority of records were collected by standard sampling methods by Agency staff. Other records were collected from casual observations or local surveys.
No citation information available.
