Developing the Biological Records Centre for the National Biodiversity Network

The Biological Records Centre (BRC), established in 1964, is the national focus in the UK for species recording (other than birds). It works with the voluntary recording community throughout the Britain and Ireland. The BRC database contains nearly 12 million records of more than 12000 species.

BRC is working with many other organisations to develop the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) http://www.nbn.org.uk. NBN is being developed to co-ordinate the efforts of over 60000 volunteer and professional naturalists who collect data on the occurrence of species of plant and animal species in Britain and Ireland. These developments will involve some 80 national biological societies and species recording schemes and over 70 local records centres.
