Here we present (text and image) the most common species (species groups)* you can expect to find on the Virtue discs - to make it easier to identify the plants and animals. This help is also available as links on the "Add Report" section, where you type in your observations. To determine the correct species can sometimes be tricky. To make it easier, we have attached short information about the species group and some of the most common species that you will encounter on the discs *, and one or a few pictures of them.
Seen any other species? Please fill in the free text field at the bottom of the report form. (You can also attach photos and comments to your report).
* Current species groups are from Scandinavia. More and other species groups – for other European regions - will be added (shortly).
The University of Gothenburg has also created Aquascope. In Aquascope you can get more help with species identification and read about many more marine animals and plants.
