Somerset Environmental Records Centre
Somerset Environmental Records Centre (SERC) is the main reference centre for biological and geological information for the county.
Part of a network of local record centres across the UK, SERC is a partnership organisation based within Somerset Wildlife Trust. Any income it generates from commercial work is channelled back into nature conservation and supporting recording within Somerset.
The data the record centre gathers on sites, habitats and species across Somerset is used to inform conservation strategy, development planning, and for research. Individuals and organisations can access this information through the data enquiries service.
SERC also carries out survey work in the county, and for several years has run a highly successful training scheme in ecological survey and species identification.
