Data from the National Plant Monitoring Scheme

This resource is made available under the terms of the Open Government Licence

This aggregation links together datasets from the National Plant Monitoring Scheme (NPMS). The NPMS is a habitat-based plant monitoring scheme designed by the Botanical Society for the British Isles (BSBI), the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH), Plantlife and the JNCC. The aim is to collect data to provide an annual indication of changes in plant abundance and diversity. It is a scientific survey, which involves recording plant ‘indicator species’ in 5 plots within a 1km square. The NPMS is indebted to all volunteers who contribute data to the scheme.
