Bruchidae and Chrysomelidae beetle data from iRecord
Species records for beetles in families Bruchidae (seed beetles) and Chrysomelidae (leaf beetles), from datasets made available via iRecord and verified by the Bruchidae and Chrysomelidae Recording Scheme (scheme organiser Dave Hubble). Records are from datasets stored within the Indicia data warehouse hosted by the Biological Records Centre - these records may originate from direct addition of records to iRecord, or via other datasets that have been added to other Indicia-hosted surveys.
Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group of species, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology. In addition, the scheme works with all contributing recorders to raise the profile of the species group and its conservation. Sharing the data via NBN helps achieve these aims.
The recording scheme applies checks for outlying records (based on species, location and date). The route by which data arrives for verification in iRecord can vary, and comes from recorders with a wide range of experience, but the same verification process is applied to all data and the scheme believes that the dataset provided to NBN is of high quality.
This dataset includes all records of the relevant taxa that have been made available for verification via iRecord. Most of these are ad hoc records from volunteer recorders, but will also include some data from professional surveys and from citizen science projects such as bioblitzes.
No citation information available.
Most records are recent (post-2012) additions, but there are some older datasets included that have been uploaded for verification purposes in recent years.
