All data is validated and supplied to the BSBI from the designated vice county recorder
This is a historic summary dataset that was supplied to NBDC for the purposes of mapping distributions at the tetrad scale. The underlying record are held in the BSBI’s Distribution Database (http://bsbidb.org.uk/).
The BSBI Maps Scheme (www.bsbimaps.org.uk) displays hectad and tetrad maps for Britain and Ireland. Note that these maps are a summary dataset only and have not been updated since 2010. More up to date maps are provided on the BSBI’s Distribution Database (http://bsbidb.org.uk/) for which users will need to register and be granted access.
