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).
