Provenance information High - all surveys have been carried out by experienced botanists, zoologists and mycologists based at the School of Natural Science, Trinity College Dublin. Where additional expertise was required, ID confirmations were sought from recognised national experts e.g. moth IDs confirmed by Micheal O'Donnell of MothsIreland, and beetles by Ken Bond. Data Capture Method: Various methods - walking transects, vegetation sweeping, tree beating, pit fall traps, pan traps, baited fly traps, litter sifting, heath traps, trail cameras, static and hand held bat detectors, pond dipping and grappling, small mammal trapping, footprint tunnels, mink rafts, winter and breeding bird surveys (transects, point and vantage counts) etc. Data Capture Purpose: The project was commissioned by the Office of Public Works at the request of President Michael D.
