From Source to Resource: Making Biological Records Count

Over 7.5 million volunteer hours go into monitoring the UK’s nature every year. Data generated through recording schemes, ad-hoc sightings and fieldwork allows researchers, land managers and conservationists to better understand the state of the natural world around us and identify how best to restore, conserve and save landscapes and species.


This free one day conference aims to discuss the journey that biological records make from the recorder to the verifier and onward. We hope this event will connect members of the biological recording community from across Scotland and create opportunity for networking and discussion, with updates from key figures and projects in the area.


The day is free of charge, open to all, and is particularly relevant to recorders, verifiers, Vice County recorders and those interested in or working in the fields of biological recording, citizen science and environmental conservation. Advance booking is essential.


A full programme will be published nearer the date but expect short talks and a mix of indoor and outdoor break-out sessions for you to attend as well as plenty of time to network and browse displays representing a variety of recording schemes operating in Scotland.
