The BSBI operates a Distribution Database (DDb) as a central store for all our records of plants and charophytes. It contains some 35 million biological records (April 2016) and is growing by approximately one million records every year. It is updated frequently from our network of Mapmate recorders and from other sources such as herbarium digitisation projects.
The system of counties and vice-counties was devised in the 1870s to create 113 units of roughly equal size covering the whole of Britain (the process was later repeated in Ireland). The boundaries of the vice counties do not change with political re-organisation so have remained the same ever since.
Vice County 63 SW Yorkshire is currently split between two recorders. The recorder for South Yorkshire is Louise Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org), while the West Yorkshire recorder is Kate McDowell. (email@example.com)
