Since the introduction of the Convention on Biological Diversity global biodiversity targets a range of indicators have been developed to monitor environmental change at a range of scales. Change in biodiversity is one element that has tried to be captured in a number of ways. I am interested in increasing our knowledge on the status of biodiversity and have worked on gathering information and reporting changes in biodiversity at various scales.
Now, based within the Biological Records Centre, I am working on monitoring the status of UK biodiversity through the use of biological records; a relatively untapped resource that includes data on a number of less well-studied taxonomic groups. Through the use of this data I hope to determine how populations of UK species are changing over time, determine the major drivers of change and establish how species traits affect responses.
