Provenance information 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. Data Capture Method: 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 Records were sourced from a range of sources including scientific literature, unpublished data and personal records. Data Capture Purpose: To collate records of earthworm distibutions into a single dataset for the country of Ireland. Original Format: SQL database
