Atlas Q&A

Questions and Answers on Plant Atlas 2020

Plant Atlas 2020 is the most in-depth survey of the British and Irish flora ever undertaken. Across the launches for this essential resource, BSBI invited individuals to submit their questions on the work, its findings and its outputs.

Those questions have been collated here to answer Frequently Asked Questions and to give further information on the project. Responses below refer to Britain and Ireland in general, but there is variation at country level (e.g. Scotland has different approaches to both land access and data sharing).

If you have additional questions that you would like to see answered here, please contact
