Abstract/Summary

The UK has a rich legacy of biological recording, developed through the expertise and commitment of volunteer participants. The Biological Records Centre has supported this activity in the UK since 1964, in close partnership with recording schemes and societies. Vast datasets have been built up and enabled a range of ecological questions to be addressed. We consider the future priorities for the role of biological recording for ecological monitoring and citizen science. We propose a 10-point plan for activities helping to ensure that biological recording continues to thrive and plays a major role.
