Abstract/Summary

It is estimated that up to 60,000 people routinely record biodiversity information in the UK. Most of this effort is voluntary and is organised through about 2,000 national societies, recording schemes and the network of local record centres. The Government, through its agencies also collects biodiversity data. This means that a huge amount of information exists and an increasing amount of data is now being shared through the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) Gateway - http://data.nbn.org.uk. The NBN is a collaboration of the UK’s wildlife organisations, the Government and country agencies, local record centres and many voluntary groups, all of whom are committed to making biodiversity information available.
