Latest version published by Vermont Center for Ecostudies on Dec 21, 2020 Vermont Center for Ecostudies

These data are from collecting events beginning in 1955 by Ross and Joyce Bell and associates, as well as reliable records from literature gathered by the authors. This dataset was used for this book: Bell, Ross T. 2015. Carabidae of Vermont and New Hampshire. 2nd ed. Shires Press, Manchester Center, Vermont. 385pp. ( https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.7716359.v1 ). Most locations of specimens were georeferenced by the authors on paper maps for each species using township borders as a reference when placing a location. Points from each of these species maps were digitized in a GIS.
