Plantlife – National Plant Monitoring Scheme 2022

The National Plant Monitoring Scheme (NPMS) aims to survey plant species across different habitats in the UK in order to get a picture of their abundance and diversity and to understand the health of different habitats.

The survey is open to anyone interested in nature who can identify plants, or who is keen to learn. You do not have to be an experienced botanist. You will only need to identify between 25-30 ‘indicator species’ per habitat. These are distinctive species specially selected to allow Plantlife to monitor changes in the countryside.
