UK Species Inventory

The UK Species Inventory is a database of all UK wildlife and it provides the taxonomic foundation for most biological recording and analysis systems. The Natural History Museum maintains this database but we work closely with expert amateur and professional taxonomists who help us to keep it up-to-date. Data is provided to organisations in the National Biodiversity Network such as the NBN Atlas, iRecord, iSpot and anyone who contributes data to the national recording schemes.
