St Andrews BioBlitz 2016
A biological recording event for the public organised by Transition University of St Andrews, to record the species of St Andrews and particularly East Sands beach on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June 2016
St Andrews, Fife and particularly East Sands beach. Participants were encouraged to record grid references of at least 100m precision and the majority of the records in the dataset have 100m grid references. Some more specific grid references are available (if provided by the recorder or often from specific traps) and some have less precise grid references where detail was not available.
To increase knowledge of the species found in St Andrews and particularly East Sands beach whilst engaging with members of the public to encourage participation in biological surveying. This dataset largely represents records captured by the data desk on the day, with just a single record per species (generally the first instance reported to the data desk during the event). If possible, this dataset will be updated in future to include all sightings captured during the event and any further detail available.
Most of the records in this dataset were made by experts from participating organisations or determined by recognised experts so a high level of confidence in the data can be assumed. Records have undergone validation (including by Data Manager of Marine Biological Association) and via NBN Record Cleaner. Records that indicated identification uncertainty have been excluded.
Most of the records are field observations made by members of the public or staff of participating organisations. Some of the data has been generated through sampling techniques, including: beating, sweeping, pitfall, moth and water traps, plankton net and use of camera traps.
