  • The aim of this section is to:

    • Provide a primary level of selections to start the 'top down' species location or indentification process

    These aims are achieved by:

    • Providing a choice of six primary species groups which form the basic kingdoms that nature is divided into (excluding the complex ones like bacteria and other seldom seen organisms.

    This section can be used for:

    • Finding information about a particular species (or group of species) that you have a particular interest in
