The National Forum for Biological Recording is the independent voice of Biological Recording in the UK.


So what is biological recording? At its simplest, it is the information on where a recognised species, habitat or community is to be found, when it was seen and by whom. Yet, in combination with information about condition, traits and environmental parameters, this simple occurrence data is vital to guiding and monitoring sustainable development, wildlife protection and positive measures for conservation.
 

In relation to a growing population, resource stewardship and a changing climate, access to and the means to understand high quality biodiversity information are vital - but this is not always appreciated.

NFBR:

  • brings together suppliers, managers, and users of information about species, habitats and wildlife sites;
  • provides a forum for discussion and sharing of knowledge and experience;
  • promotes the importance of biodiversity information in nature conservation, planning, research, education and public participation;
  • represents the biological recording community.
