|Rough Crew in a Mayo gulley|
"Final tally from the hugely successful Mayo BSBI recording week is in, and I can't believe what we achieved!
- 42 botanists took part (some for the entire 8 days!)
- 33 hectads (10x10 km sq) all across Mayo were visited
- 132 monads (1x1 km sq) were visited
- And, ... ... wait for it, ... ...
- 10,824 plant records were collected!!
|Celebration dinner (takeaway!): 10,000+ records!|
Hear hear! Congratulations to all the botanists who contributed to these excellent results which will feed into BSBI's distribution database and show up in Atlas 2020.
Every dot on a BSBI distribution map is thanks to our amazing BSBI members who go out botanising across Britain and Ireland, recording where our beautiful - and often threatened - wild flowers are growing and feeding their records back via our County Recorders (186 of them!), with support from our team of 105 specialist plant referees. What a fabulous network!
