Methodology

Quality control

Many high quality surveys completed by expert consultants and volunteers, also by trained NTS countryside staff. Casual records and those from historical documents may not have been verified. This data should not be regarded as having comprehensive geographic or taxonomic coverage. This dataset has passed the NBN record cleaner validation checks only. Data should be checked against original sources before use in contentious circumstances. Some data may be duplicated with records also held by schemes, societies and local record centres.

Method Steps

  1. Various survey methods have been used as appropriate for differing target species and survey aims. We have also collated historical data from other reports, articles and books. Records have been entered by NTS staff and volunteers, and records were also entered on our behalf by NESBReC. Surveys were carried out by staff, volunteers or consultants to assist with site management. In addition we have received casual records from staff and visitors and collated historical data from other reports, articles and books.
