Once you have performed a search a table of results will appear as follows
Results are sorted by default in alphabetical order by scientific name. By clicking on either the Common Name or the Scientific Name headers you can re-dort the table accorsdingly. The table also shows how many records of each species have occurred in the selected square, and the first and last dates fo these records.
The final column gives links to other websites containing information about the selected species. For each species there is a direct link to the National Biodiversity Network Gateway website, through which you can view distribution maps, search and list records and download data. Please bear in mind that as with our local database not all available information is accessible via the NBN gateway so some species are better represented than others. For more information on interpreting results from the NBN Gateway visit the NBN Gateway help pages. Links to other useful sources will be added wherever possible.
Some species are of local importance, and as such are recognised as priorities in the Local Biodiversity action Plan. These species are flagged with the LBAP leaf symbol alongside their name.
If there are no records for your chosen species group in your selected square, a message will appear saying "No records of [species group] found in selected square". Clicking on another species group (or another square) will refresh the search and replace the results table.
