Paper on Donaciinae (aquatic leaf beatles) published!

A new paper on Donaciinae (aquatic leaf beetles) in Britain and Ireland has been published in The Coleopterist - a journal focussing on beetles in the British Isles.  Chris Cathrine (Director (Ecology) at Caledonian Conservation Ltd) worked with Garth Foster (The Aquatic Coleoptera Trust, and lead author) and Brian Nelson (Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht) to produce this update on these fascinating beetles.

The paper includes several new vice county records, and draws on a range of sources including two Site Condition Monitoring reports for Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) in Scotland, completed by Caledonian Conservation Ltd under contract to Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH).
