27/09/2016

To collect data on the distribution of mammals in Ireland over the period 2010 to 2015 to provide a benchmark on the spatial distribution against which future change can be tracked.
The principal method of data capture is through submission of records through the Centre's on-line records submission form. Data is also being incorporated from different sources and digitised and added to Dataset.
Island of Ireland and its offshore waters
Principally concerned with generating new data from 2010 to 2015, but any old records will also be included to expand the database.
All data is validated by national experts, according to different standards set for each species or groups of species.
Dataset is incomplete as it forms part of an ongoing survey
