Key to Irish Chitons


An identification key to chiton species found in Irish waters has been added to our resources page. The guide was originally a Heritage Council funded project, but lost its home on the internet. Together with Julia Sigwart and Katarzyna Voncina of the Senckenberg – Leibniz Institution for Biodiversity and Earth System Research, we have updated and revamped the key and given it a new home here on ExploreYourShore.ie
