Robust research on and monitoring of plant species, the life-supports of our habitats and ecosystems, are essential in understanding the effects of growing pressures on our habitats and landscapes.
Supported by hundreds of dedicated citizen scientists, heading out annually to conduct botanical surveys at their allocated sites. The long-term surveys by the National Plant Monitoring Scheme in random 1 km squares continue to provide a growing dataset across the UK, enabling us to study the abundance and diversity of plants through time, across 30 different semi-natural habitats.
This spring, the NPMS partnership has released the second in its series of NPMS Annual Reports.
