Monad recording in Cornwall up to 30th November 2018

Colin French (BSBI vice-county recorder for West Cornwall) has produced the latest updated maps from the ERICA database showing the progress in recording in each monad (1 km x 1 km square) in Cornwall up to 30th November 2018 in preparation for a New Cornwall Atlas – hopefully published around end of 2020.

During 2018 we have been targeting monads with fewer than 200 species recorded. During the present survey we have found that most monads in Cornwall have over 200 species, except the high moorland areas of Bodmin Moor where it is difficult to get more than 100 species in a monad, and some are far richer. Still lots in East Cornwall to do so if you are interested in helping in 2019 please contact the BCG co-ordinator Ian Bennallick.

You can see how many monads have been updated by comparing the map above to the one below showing the status of monads up to November 2017.
