this dataset was gathered as part of a Scottish Natural Heritage contract in 2013/14. It provides the results of invertebrate surveys designed to inform Site Condition Monitoring at Abernethy Forest SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified click beetle (Ampedus tristis), bug (Eremocoris fenestratus), narrow-headed ant (Formica exsecta), pine mason bee (Osmia uncinata), cousin German moth (Protolampra sobrina), northern damselfly (Coenagrion hastulatum) and spiders (Araneae) features, but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
Abernethy Forest SSSI.
We have a very high level of confidence in this dataset. Where necessary, rare specimens were compared against reference collections, those held in the National Museums Scotland collection and identities confirmed with experts.
Surveys targeted the notified features of Abernethy Forest SSSI. However other tax were also recorded. Due to the variety of notified features several different survey methods were used. Three transects of pitfall traps were used to target Araneae, Ampedus tristis and Eremocoris fenestratus, and were set on 4 and 5 of June and collected on 19 and 20 June 2013. Sweep net transects were used to collect Araneae and Ampedus tristis thoughout June and July 2013. Aerial netting was used to collect Osmia uncinata throughout June and July 2013. Bugvac sampling was used to collect Araneae and Eremocoris fenestratus on 31 July and 1 August 2013. Bark traps and nest traps were used to collect Araneae and left in situ from June to August 2013.
