National Plant Monitoring Scheme

Habitat samples from the National Plant Monitoring Scheme, 2015-2022

This data resource provides plot-level habitat data for the first eight years (2015-2022) of the National Plant Monitoring Scheme (covering the UK, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man). Data consist of surveyor-recorded habitat information on repeated samples of fixed plots at the metre-scale. Other information includes the date of sampling, data regarding the spatial location of the plot, and an assessment of whether or not the recorded broad habitat is reported to have changed between surveyor visits.

This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.
