WBS members are involved with a range of initiatives recording species presence and monitoring change across the county. At present many members are actively contributing records for the next national BSBI Atlas, a ten-year recording initiative. From time to time we also undertake other botanical research projects in conjunction with Natural England, Plantlife and others. Members contribute to local knowledge of arable weeds, assist with recording work in new reserves and in the past have helped to provide records for the Wiltshire Rare Plant Register.
All records generated by society members are shared with the BSBI and the Wiltshire and Swindon Biological Records Centre, ensuring the data are shared with the wider community.
