The wetland invertebrates of Ireland

Ireland has a reputation of being a wet country. This is hardly surprising, as it is situated on the western edge of Europe in the line of rain-bearing Atlantic weather systems. As a result, the climate is temperate and mild, with year-round rainfall. The low evapo-transpiration rates combine with gentle topography and impeded drainage to produce a landscape dominated by wetlands.
