Bryophyte data for Great Britain from the British Bryological Society held by BRC: Atlas 2014LSID
Bryophyte records submitted to the Biological Records Centre for England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. The dataset comprises records collected for the Bryophyte Recording Scheme, as well as those extracted from literature and museum sources. Details of all the surveys in this dataset can be obtained by clicking the 'Surveys' tab. This 'Atlas' dataset contains all of the records presented in Blockeel et al. (2014) Atlas of British and Irish Bryophytes, with the exception of two datasets (one from Cofnod [North Wales Environmental Information Centre] and one from CEDaR [Centre for Environmental Data and Recording, Northern Ireland]) which the BBS were not given permission to export to the NBN. These are datasets 883 and 881 in the BBS/BRC database. This new dataset contains records covering 109 vice-counties since the last NBN export, with over five hundred new records for each of the following counties: Cheshire, North Ebudes, East Sussex, West Ross, Caernarvonshire, Merionethshire, Shropshire (Salop), Carmarthenshire, Argyll Main, West Inverness-shire, South Lancashire, Surrey, East Norfolk, Outer Hebrides, South-west Yorkshire, East Inverness-shire (with Nairn), Breconshire, Cambridgeshire, West Lancashire, Dumfriesshire, West Norfolk, West Sussex, Huntingdonshire, North Essex, Durham, Cardiganshire, Buckinghamshire, North Northumberland (Cheviot), West Sutherland, and Derbyshire. This dataset will not be added to in future, but will only be subject to amendments. Data collected or collated by the BBS post-Atlas (i.e. from the 01/01/2014) will form a new dataset on the NBN.
Great Britain, Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands.
For county floras, national atlas production and inclusion in BRC database.
The data were validated against known vice-county distributions of the species, and (for critical species) by expert examination of specimens.
Mainly from record cards, which were typed up at the Biological Records Centre. More recent data (since 2000) have mostly been sent electronically. This is discussed in more detail in the Atlas of Bryophytes (2014), vol. 1, pp. 2-11.

Whilst this dataset is available at its full resolution as it is held on the NBN, the spatial resolution of the records of a small number of 'sensitive' species was coarsened on the creation of this NBN dataset. This applies to occurrences of Paludella squarrosa, Leiocolea rutheana and Meesia triquetra in Ireland.
