Nature Notes from Skye and Argyll
(and occasionally other places)

Species index

(28 Sep 2004) This is a rough guide to the images on the site.  It would be very time-consuming to compile a proper index and keep it updated, so I'm just copying the alt tag of each image into the list below and linking it to the page where the image occurs.  I hope to put the list into a better taxonomic order as and when time allows.  Where there are 2 images with the same alt tag on the same date, there is only one listing, but two images together of the same species with different alt tags have both on the same line in this list.  Where 2 species occur in a single alt tag, it may be listed under each if they are felt to be equally important, but cases such as a bee on a knapweed flower will normally only be listed for the bee.  Galls are listed under "galls" using the name of the gall-causer, which is not, so far, listed separately under its own heading such as "diptera" or "fungi".

If you are looking for, say, a Cladonia lichen that was on the site in early March 2004, mouse over the Cladonia listings and the date of each will appear in the status bar in yyyy-mm-dd format (or to be exact, the date of the first entry on the relevant page, which may be a few days earlier)

From a clean start, I would not necessarily have made the index consist entirely of Latin names rather than English ones, but that's how it's worked out because of my policy of putting the Latin names in the alt tags and the English names in the text.

At present species from the Mallorca section are not in this index but those from anywhere in the UK are.
