Species

In the left menue are the most common organisms you can expect to find on the VIRTUE discs - to make it easier to identify the plants and animals that you discover. These can also be found in the "Add Report" section when you record your observations.

Identifying the correct species can be a challenge. To make it easier, we have attached short descriptions about the species group and some of the most common species that you will encounter on the discs, and images to assist in your observations. 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).

The University of Gothenburg has also created Aquascope. In Aquascope, there is additional help with species identification and information about many more marine animals and plants. (Only in Swedish and English).
