<< Taxonomy Detail

The classification is currently being revised and elaborated and is not completely reliable. Seaweeds, flowering plants and ferns are reasonably complete, as are sponges and butterflies. Some common birds have been entered, but only about 150 of the 450 or so reported from Ireland.
