National Plant Monitoring Scheme (NPMS)

The purpose of NPMS is to monitor plant species abundance and diversity across UK geographies and habitat types. The plant biodiversity monitoring scheme is carried out by volunteer surveyors nationwide. Plant biodiversity sustains healthy ecosystems and the natural resources and services that are essential for human life, health and economic activity. NPMS data tell us how plants and habitats are responding to changing land use, climate and pollution, and so inform government policy, land management and conservation.
