Collation of datasets on behalf of national recording schemes and socities is a key element of BRC’s work. Datasets underpin the research the examples given throughout this website. We support publishing datasets via the National Biodiversity Network Gateway, as listed below.
BRC contributes to many distribution datasets shared via the NBN Gateway. In addition, we develop datasets to support research applications - these include the Database of British Insects and their Foodplants (DBIF) and datasets on the ecological attributes of plants (PLANTATT) and bryophytes (BRYOATT).
