Description
This dataset contains species records gathered during field meetings of the Yorkshire Naturalists Union Marine and Coastal Section since 2011, as well as records gathered during a marine life identification course in 2010. more

To improve our understanding of the distribution of marine and coastal species in Yorkshire, species records were gathered during field meetings of the Yorkshire Naturalists Union Marine and Coastal Section since 2011, as well as during a marine life identification course in 2010. All intertidal surveys have been carried out by volunteers. The dataset includes records collected by members of the public during the Scarborough Bioblitz in June 2011, all of which were verified by experienced recorders. Records from the Scarborough Bioblitz include specimens collected by a fishing vessel and by divers. This dataset does not contain any mollusc records, as these have been provided to the Conchological Society. Since this dataset consists of records made by volunteer recorders during YNU field meetings and ad hoc records sent in by YNU members independently, it should not be regarded as having comprehensive geographic or taxonomic coverage. Where possible, records are determined in situ by experienced recorders within the YNU, and in some cases photographs and specimens have been sent to experts for verification.
