Invertebrate Common Standards Monitoring and ISIS Test Data
This dataset represents an accumulation of invertebrate records from both common standards monitoring (CSM) and the testing of ISIS (Invertebrate Species-habitats Information System).
Data was used initially to trial the use of ISIS (an analytical database) for applying common standards monitoring. Following on from this, CSM data was captured to ascertain the condition status of SSSIs that support invertebrate assemblage features.
Data quality should be high, particularly in the earlier stages of the project. A large number of recorders working on this project were of high skill and specialists in their given area. They are known to have assisted each othera^??s identification, with difficult to identify specimens being verified by the appropriate worker.
Invertebrate species were recorded using a specific survey protocol for rapid assessment of invertebrate assemblage features on protected sites. Data from CSM reports commissioned by Natural England were pooled together into a spreadsheet in 2016.
