Biological Records Centre Annual Report 2005–2006 2006
The Biological Records Centre (BRC) is funded jointly by JNCC and NERC through a partnership based on a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA). The partnership started in 1973 when the Nature Conservancy was divided to form the successor bodies Nature Conservancy Council (NCC) and Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (ITE). NCC was in turn divided further to form JNCC and three country agencies, while ITE was merged with other NERC units to form CEH. Through all these changes, the partnership has been maintained. A six-year memorandum of agreement ended on 31 January 2005. The present report covers the first full year, 2005-6, of the new agreement for 2005–2010.
The work of the Biological Records Centre (BRC) takes place as a partnership between JNCC and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH). The main purposes of BRC are to document species distributions and to interpret changes at the geographical scale in the United Kingdom. The work of BRC is possible, not only because of longstanding support from the funding partners, but also because of the commitment of volunteers, recording schemes, government departments, local records centres, academic researchers, and non-government conservation organisations to the large-scale documentation of biodiversity.
