Single species distribution map

We are able to provide a distribution map of any species not deemed as sensitive by the recording groups.

This product is suitable for:

  • identifying gaps in recording effort
  • identifying errors in grid references
  • developing species atlases

Due to the production time, these maps are not routinely provided.

Site survey reports

There are sites for which HBIC holds detailed survey information. They are known as biosites. Copies of these ecological survey reports can be provided.
