Welcome to Pantheon, the tool to help you analyse your invertebrate species samples. The Pantheon team welcomes feedback, which you can send via the various methods on the Contact page.

The draft Aculeate Hymenoptera status values in Pantheon have reverted to those of the 1991 Status Review, for the time being. The draft statuses will be revised over the coming months.

The UK has a long tradition of recording and latterly of deciding on concepts of national rarity and threat. From Eversham’s 1983 treatise on it, there have been variants and additions, ending up with Nationally Rare, Nationally Scarce, and the well-known list of IUCN Threat categories.

Pantheon is an analytical tool developed by Natural England and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology to assist invertebrate nature conservation in England. Users import lists of invertebrates into Pantheon, which then analyses the species, attaching associated habitats and resources, conservation status and other codings against them.

This information can then be used to assign quality to sites, assist in management decisions and augment other ecological study.
