The National Biodiversity Data Centre

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is an initiative of the Heritage Council. It has a comprehensive data management system which to date has brought together 60 national databases, comprising 1.6 million records of over 10,000 species, spanning a period of 200 years. Despite these extensive records, no full inventory or assessment of the state of knowledge on Ireland’s biodiversity resources has ever been completed. The results of the first full inventory of the principal sources of biodiversity data in Ireland were launched in March 2011. This resource will be kept up to date as the knowledge base expands over the coming years, check the website for the latest publications.
