Staffordshire Wildlife Trust Nature Reserves Inventory
Records relating to the nature reserves owned or managed by Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. The data cover a wide taxonomic range of animals and plants. These data include both systematic surveys of the reserves and ad hoc records sent in by visitors, hence the data quality is variable.
Records are all from Staffordshire Modern county and from within or immediately adjacent to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust's nature reserves.
The majority of the data collection is for monitoring the condition and biodiversity present on Staffordshire Wildlife Trust's nature reserves. Some of the records are due to organised surveys of the reserves, but the majority are ad hoc records collected by SWT reserve managers, local enthusiasts and occasional visitors.
Most of the data has been inputted by the local expert in the relevant group so this should be adequately validated, however, grid references for early records and publically supplied data have often been inferred to the best knowledge of the collator. The data has not be checked using the NBN Record Cleaner.
The data are primarily collected by the taxon-interest groups involved with each survey and hence survey techniques various depending on the species involved, however, the majority are based upon general field observations. The bulk of the records are then collated by the taxon-interest group and verified prior to supply to SER. Bat Group and Mammal Group records are also computerised by the relevant groups using MapMate prior to supply to SER. These MapMate data are subsequently transferred into Recorder 6 at SER.
