UK Biodiversity Action Plan Invertebrate Data for Wales
This dataset is a collation of all confirmed occurrence records of UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) Priority invertebrate species reported from Wales.
All Wales. The majority of the records are available at a precision of between 4 and 6 figure grid references.
The aim of the data was to collate information on UK BAP invertebrates in Wales and inform Local Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP) partners.
Data accuracy is reliant on original sources. Spatial references, dates and species identifications have been validated by NRW's invertebrate experts checking printed lists of records, and literature references have been added where possible.
The dataset is a sub-set of the Welsh Invertebrate Database (WID). WID is a collation of records from many available sources, including literature records, published surveys and information submitted by naturalists. Records including negative occurrences where the species has been specifically searched for without success are noted. The complete database contains third party data and NRW is working towards the release of the full database.
