SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: Cadder Wilderness SSSI
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 Cadder Wilderness SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage feature (Cryptophagus corticinus, Arge enodis and Pseudohemitaxonus sharpi), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
Cadder Wilderness SSSI
The survey aimed to detect the presence of the invertebrate assemblage feature (Cryptophagus corticinus, Arge enodis and Pseudohemitaxonus sharpi), which is a notified feature of Cadder Wilderness SSSI, in order to inform the site condition assessment.
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 invertebrate assemblage feature of Cadder Wilderness SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled Cryptophagus corticinus using bark traps that were in place from the 1 May to the 3 June 2013. We sampled adult Arge enodis and Pseudohemitaxonus sharpi on 6 June 2013 by sweep netting along a transect attempting to cover a representative area of the woodland. One sweep consisted of moving the net back and forth through the vegetation ahead whilst walking slowly, covering approximately a 10 x 1 m section of ground.
