National Biodiversity Network

National Biodiversity Network

The National Biodiversity Network is working to provide internet access to a ‘data warehouse’ of UK biodiversity information – past, present and future. It is collating data from local records centres and from national databases (such as the Biological Records Centre) using a standardized format to allow users to search the combined records and view the UK distribution of species (and the changes in distribution with time).

Freshwater indicators

Mayfly and stonefly larvae are used to indicate freshwater quality as they are sensitive to environmental conditions.
