Table 72: Species lists in rank order for invertebrate macrofossils from samples from sites in Aberdeen investigated in the present study. For each sample assemblage the adult Hemiptera (bugs) and Coleoptera (beetles) are listed first, followed by the remaining invertebrates. Headers: weight is in kilogrammes; E - erosion; F - fragmentation (following Kenward and Large 1998); ec = ecological codes; n = minimum number of individuals; SQ = semi-quantitative (e = estimate; - = fully quantitative, m = 'many', translated as 15 individuals; s = several, translated as 6). For translation of ecological codes, see Table 74. Samples not taken beyond assessment are not included. Note: it has not been practical to italicise specific epithets in this table.
