SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2015: Rinns of Islay SSSI
This dataset was gathered as part of a Scottish Natural Heritage contract in 2015. It provides the results of invertebrate surveys designed to inform Site Condition Monitoring at Rinns of Islay SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage features (Macroplea appendiculata and Gyrinus distinctus), but other taxa were also recorded.
Rinns of Islay SSSI
The survey aimed to detect the presence of the invertebrate assemblage feature (Macroplea appendiculata and Gyrinus distinctus), which is a notified feature of Rinns of Islay SSSI, in order to inform the site condition assessment.
We have a very high level of confidence in this dataset. Where necessary, rare specimens were compared against reference collections, those held in the National Museums Scotland collection and identities confirmed with experts.
