Littoral Macroinvertebrate Data From Irish Lakes
For research purposes and ecological assessment. Data were collected by Dr Ruth Little and Dr Gary Free under a research project funded by the EPA
Two-minute kick sample for the lake littoral, preserved in IMS and counted and identified to the highest taxonomic resolution possible/practical.
Republic of Ireland
Survey carried out during spring and summer 2001-2003
Overall good quality data. Several taxa were grouped to Genus to ensure compatibility for analysis.
