National Plant Monitoring Scheme - Northern Ireland
The National Plant Monitoring Scheme (NPMS) is a habitat-based plant monitoring scheme designed by BSBI, CEH, Plantlife and JNCC. The aim is to collect data to provide an annual indication of changes in plant abundance and diversity. This dataset includes NPMS species occurrence data for Northern Ireland; a companion, but separate dataset is supplied for England, Wales, Scotland.
See http://www.npms.org.uk for more information. Note that although all records within the NPMS are collected at the sub-10 m scale, the Northern Irish dataset presented here is degraded to 1 km.
The aim of the NPMS is to collect data to provide an annual indication of changes in plant abundance and diversity.
Records are available for verification by regional experts through the iRecord system (records may or may not have supporting photographs). The current verification status of each record is propagated to the Atlas, and updated accordingly.
For a full description of the methods used in the NPMS, see the NPMS website http://www.npms.org.uk) and the technical documents and papers linked therein.
