PondNet data 2012-2014
Multi-taxa structured surveillance of ponds, including species and habitat data.
This dataset includes records collected during trials 2012-2014 in Hampshire, Cheshire, Sussex and Yorkshire.
PondNet is a national monitoring network of ponds to understand trends in widespread, localised and restricted pond species and pond quality. Surveys are based on structured surveillance using standardised methodologies agreed with national species monitoring organisations (e.g. NARRS - amphibians, BDS - dragonflies, PSYM - invertebrate and plants, etc.). Ponds were selected based on a stratified random sample in addition to self-selected sites.
Data have been entered by volunteers and checked using NBN Record Cleaner. As a result location data has been checked and confirmed by project staff. Data were collected as part of a trial and a proportion were analysed for accuracy against QA data.
Records were entered by volunteers into an Indicia portal designed for the PondNet project. The dataset has been verified.
