Research at North Bull Island UNESCO Biosphere: An overview of studies completed 1995-2014
North Bull Island, due to its international scientific importance for flora and fauna and also its close proximity to the capital city and many national universities, has long been a resource for education and scientific discovery. Since the establishment of the Biosphere in 1981, there has been a substantial body of work produced by Irish and international researchers. However, this information had not been gathered and collated for the Biosphere and remains housed in university library collections. It is desirable to guide future research by enabling students to see what has already been done and what baseline data has been collected at this important site.
