The National Forum for Biological Recording is the independent
voice of Biological Recording in the UK. So what is biological
recording? At its simplest, it is the information on where a species,
habitat or community is to be found, when it was seen and by whom, yet
in combination with information about condition, traits and
environmental parameters, this simple occurrence data is vital to
guiding and monitoring the sustainable development, wildlife protection
and positive measures for conservation in relation to a growing
population, resource stewardship and a changing climate.
The supply of and means to understand high quality biodiversity information are vital - but not always appreciated.
brings together suppliers, managers, and users of information about species, habitats and wildlife sites;
provides a forum for discussion and sharing of knowledge and experience;
