National Earthworm Recording Scheme Records (Channel Islands)
This dataset includes all earthworm records submitted to the National Earthworm Recording Scheme (Channel Islands) since launching in 2016 through to April 2020. This includes using a variety of sampling methods and records produced by the Earthworm Society of Britain, volunteer biological recorders and biodiversity sector organisations.
Full details of the National Earthworm Recording Scheme can be found on the Earthworm Society of Britain website: http://earthwormsoc.org.uk
Records have so far only been submitted from the island of Jersey within the Channel Islands. Distributional bias exists where active recorders are present and where ESB recording events were held. Records were provided at varying degrees of resolution (including records at 50m square and 100m square resolution). All records were submitted to the NBN Atlas at full resolution with no access constraints.
All records are a minimum of 'Considered correct' and those that have been verified from a photo or a voucher specimen include the name of the verifier and are 'Correct'. Records are only accepted from approved recorders or where the species identification can be verified from a photo or a voucher specimen. The data has not been checked using NBN Record Cleaner. The range of each of the British earthworm species is not currently known. Eisenia fetida has been used as an aggregate species for both Eisenia fetida and Eisenia andrei due to the difficulties associated with reliably separating these two species.
Records result from a range of data capture methods (and this is recorded in the 'Method' field).
