Re: Species designation sets for reporting for 6.14-your chance to comment
In the next version of Recorder (6.14) we have introduced some new functionality which is intended to both improve and make easier the task of reporting on species designations. Within the report wizard you will be able to choose 'sets' of designations on which to filter records. We have drafted a few initial groups of these 'sets' with a little external help but would greatly appreciate any feedback and comments on these so far. The details of the groupings can be found in the following spreadsheet: http://forums.nbn.org.uk/uploads.php?file=designation%20groups.xls but the broad outline of the 'sets' are as follows:
All Designated Species excluding Northern Ireland (All European, W&C, Cons Regs, Red Lists)
All European Designated (Birds Dir, H&S, Berne, Bonn)
All UK Legally Protected (W&C Act, Badgers and Cons Regs)
Wildlife & Countryside Act (All Schedules)
IUCN Red Lists (excl BoCC)
Biodiversity Action Plan species (2007)
NI Wildlife Order
Do these make sense to you in terms of reporting on species designations? Would you use them? Can you think of others that would be more appropriate to your needs?
It would be best to post comments below this post as others can then feed into the debate.
Many thanks in advance for your input.
