Dataset Details - Earthworms of Ireland
Records of earthworm distribution on the island of Ireland.
24/07/2015
14/04/2022
To collate records of earthworm distibutions into a single dataset for the country of Ireland.
Records result from a range of data capture methods (and this is recorded in the 'Sampling method' field where known). Records were sourced from a range of sources including scientific literature, unpublished data and personal records.
The island of Ireland.
1892 to 2013.
All records are 'Considered correct'. The ESB has not verified individual records with the determiners, though it should be noted that the many of the determiners are recognised and respected earthworm taxonomists and researchers. Data should therefore be checked against original sources before use in contentious circumstances. The range of each of the Irish earthworm species is not currently known.
Complete in terms of historical records.
