Welcome to the Biological Records Centre website
The Biological Records Centre (BRC), established in 1964, is a national focus in
the UK for terrestrial and freshwater species recording. BRC works closely with
the voluntary recording community, principally through support of
schemes and societies.
BRC is supported by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) and the Centre for Ecology &
Hydrology (CEH) within the Natural
Environment Research Council (NERC). The
work of BRC is a major component of the National Biodiversity Network (NBN). More...
