Plant diversity and occurrence over 40 years
Trends in plants that impact people and their livelihoods in Great Britain
UKCEH have produced a new app which presents information upon a selection of plant species that are important to a variety of different ecosystem functions. The data comes from repeated surveys of the British countryside as part of the Countryside Survey in 1978, 1990, 1998, 2007 and continuing as part of the UKCEH Countryside Survey five year rolling program from 2019-2023 within the UK-SCAPE programme. The plots show changes in plant diversity over the years, and the table shows how the percentage of sites surveyed that contain specific species has changed.
