Collecting biological records is essential to enable us to understand the biodiversity of Staffordshire.
Much of these records are collected by organised surveys, however, a significant proportion are supplied by the general public. Isolated records may not seem very useful, but when they are all brought together in the Local Records Centre
(LRC), they build up a detailed picture of the county.
This information is then used to inform the BAP process and via the LRC interactive distribution maps are available Staffordshire Ecological Record, Online Atlases
If you wish to send in any records to the LRC please visit the Staffordshire Ecological Record
page, where details of the information needed are included.
