Titlesort descending Summary Tags
in buildings Species associated with human activity and found in or restricted to the interior of buildings label
inflorescence Species requiring the flower or seed head or other part of the inflorescence for feeding on. resource
inquilines in galls Species that live or develop inside the galls produced by gall wasps. resource
inundated rot holes Cavities in the heartwood in which water accumulates, usually within the main trunk (e.g. where lateral branches have died and broken off) but includes cavities in root bases or at branch forks. resource
ISIS The Invertebrate Species-habitat Information System that was a fore-runner of, and has been incorporated into, Pantheon. general glossary
Labels The labels include synanthropic, parasite, ubiquitous, extinct, unknown, vagrant/introduced and include species not associated with a natural habitat. general glossary
lake Large bodies of open standing freshwater habitat
lakeside emergent/aquatic vegetation Emergent and aquatic plants found in the shallower parts of lakes. resource
larvae ground active/pupate in soil Tree-associated species that have larvae associated with the ground or soil resource
larvae root feeders Tree-associated species that have larvae feeding on roots resource
LC Least concern in Great Britain status
LC (European) Least concern in Europe status
LC (Global) Least concern globally status
leaves (miners) Species with larvae that feed between the upper and lower layers of leaves, creating a mine through the leaf as they feed. Many species develop inside a single leaf, some transfer between several leaves during their larval development. resource
leaves and/or stems Species feed on leaves or green stems. resource
Legal Protection Species given some form of special protection through wildlife legislation. status
lichen Species is associated with epiphytic lichens resource
light shade Species associated with lighter shade conditions, within sheltered woodland resource
limestone A sedimentary rock, in this instance, consisting of hard outcrops of rocks as opposed to soft chalky/sandy rock. resource
litter & ground layer A terrestrial layer consisting of a mixture of soil and often, plant litter. resource
living sapwood Species feeding on living sapwood. resource
mammal/bird nests Occupied or abandoned mammal or bird breeding structures, which includes those in tunnels, tree holes, roof voids and squirrel dreys resource
mammalian burrows Subterranean mammal homes with breeding chambers and associated tunnels. resource
marshland This habitat is associated with still open water bodies and littoral areas on mineral substrates that may be subject to repeated disturbance, for example by flooding or grazing. Floodplain sites may be inundated for varying periods either by surface run-off or by rising groundwater, but between floods, they can lose surface water to reveal a substrate that is humid rather than saturated. habitat
mature tree canopy Species associated with the canopy of mature trees, either as adults or as larvae. resource
moist red rot Fungal rot that does not destroy lignin, leaving a crumbly red-brown material, in this case damp. resource
moist white rot Fungal rot that digests all of the wood, including the lignin, in this case leaving a soupy porridge. resource
moist wood mould Accumulations of woody material, fungi and animal fragments that can be found filling up within the centre of a hollow tree, saturated with water resource
montane & upland The assemblage type is most frequently found above the natural tree line, i.e. wherever exposure limits the growth of trees and tall shrubs and allows the development of dwarf shrubs and other forms of stress-tolerant vegetation. SAT
moss Species is associated with epiphytic mosses resource
moss & tussock fen The assemblage appears to avoid open water and require tussocks and/or isolated bushes for shelter. They are best expressed in permanently wet habitats. SAT
museum collections Synanthropic species associated with museum collections label
