   The National Plant Monitoring Scheme.  The scheme, which has just been launched,  is the first of its kind and asks for volunteers across the United Kingdom to visit a kilometre square local to them and record the plants they find there in several different plots. The scheme will enable us to explore how plants in different habitats are responding to changes in the environment.  For more information click on the links below.
