National Biodiversity Network (NBN)

Nottingham - United Kingdom

Surprisingly, there has never been a statutory requirement for any one organisation to collect records on a long-term basis. Despite this a national Biological Records Centre was set up in 1964 to collate data, particularly from voluntary recording schemes, to make information available to conservation bodies and to publish the results. The lack of co-ordinated resources to work with local and national recorders resulted in no one organisation being able to see the whole picture. And as pressures to report on the environment increased so did the urgency to improve the situation.
