Dataset Details - Species Data from the National Vegetation Database
The National Vegetation Database (NVD) was established in 2007 by the National Biodiversity Data Centre in conjunction with the NPWS. It is a central repository for Irish vegetation surveys. This dataset includes vascular plant data extracted from the NVD as species records.

All data was originally recorded as relevés during Irish vegetation surveys for various purposes. It was centrally collated into the NVD by the National Biodiversity Data Centre.
All data was originally recorded as vegetation relevés and digitised during the creation of the National Vegetation Database (2007-2012). The NVD is stored in Turboveg by the National Biodiversity Data Centre.

1952 - current
All data was validated as vegetation data before being accepted into the NVD. When this data was extracted as species records it was then validated as vascular plant species data by the National Biodiversity Data Centre.
This dataset will continue to be updated as more data is added to the NVD
