Trichoptera (caddisflies) of Ireland is spreading its wings

December 17, 2013

The Trichoptera (caddisflies) of Ireland dataset is now available through the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) via the National Biodiversity Data Centre (www.biodiversityireland.ie).

GBIF is an international open data infrastructure available on-line at www.gbif.org. The facility allows people all across the world to access and download data on species, including systematics and distribution, via the internet. The available data are provided to GBIF by researchers around the world through a system of nodes: institutions that gather data at a national level and provide it to GBIF. The Irish National Biodiversity Data Centre (NBDC) is the national node for Ireland.

I am delighted that the dataset I have put together and made available through the NBDC is now even more widely available and is there for researchers around the world to use in their work.
