The Importance of Welsh LERC Data - LRC Wales

This CEH report for Welsh Government (WG) shows the importance of the data held by the Welsh Local Environmental Records Centres (BIS, Cofnod, WWBIC & SEWBReC). The report is a review of the contribution species records, held by the Welsh LERC's, make to ERAMMP (Environment & Rural Affairs Monitoring and Modelling Programme) Evidence Needs. In 2019-20 the Welsh LERCs were funded by Welsh Government to contribute LERC species data to the ERAMMP project.
