Now in its 7th year, data from the scheme has been used to input into the UK Biodiversity Set as part of C7 Plants of the Wider Countryside indicator UK Habitat Condition Indicator. Further work is expected on the indicator and vital habitat information is being explored across the dataset. The partnership project (JNCC, UKCEH, Plantlife, BSBI and DAERA) is the only long-term monitoring scheme of plants and habitats of it’s kind. Approximately 1500 volunteers are currently allocated a 1km square to survey and monitor across 5 plots twice a year every year. The robust methodology and long term monitoring of plants and habitats is already providing essential data on how are plant communities are fairing under increasing pressures and drivers of change. Please head to the website for more information or watch our videos on our YouTube channel . We also have a series of Webinars about the NPMS and habitat training webinars also, registration is here .
