The Rock Pool Project database - intertidal species records from rocky shore habitats - from February 2019
The Rock Pool Project database contains species records collected by members of the public participating in the Rock Pool Project, a citizen science programme run by not-for-profit organisation People Power Science CIC Ltd. Species detected are photographed, verified by Rock Pool Project team members and stored. Records are obtained during one of two survey types: 1) Rock Pool Bingo for children up to the age of nine and 2) Rock Pool Biodiversity surveys for children of age nine and up, and adults. Rock Pool Bingo surveys are based on a grid of species commonly found in Cornish rock pool sites and are completed in groups. Rock Pool Biodiversity surveys are focused on a specific taxonomic group and record all species found within this group within a set time period and area. Absence records, for UK species within focal species groups that are not discovered, are provided for Rock Pool Biodiversity surveys. Rock Pool Bingo records should be regarded as presence only and do not contain absence records. Detailed protocols for both survey types can be found on the Rock Pool Project website: https://therockpoolproject.co.uk/about-us/survey-protocols.
Predominently the Cornish coast as of July 2019
Biodiversity surveys provide presence/absence data for specific taxonomic groups to allow for calculation of biodiversity measurements such as species richness and species composition comparisons. Rock Pool Bingo surveys are purely for ad hoc species discovery.
Species detected are photographed, verified by Rock Pool Project team members and stored.
