Who to Contact

Introduction

The list below includes all the local experts who have given their permission to be contacted for further information or identifications, please note that ALL data searches should be addressed to the SER Office, not to the individual recorders.

  • For any taxonomic group not listed above: for invertebrates the contact Staffordshire Invertebrate Group, otherwise please either search the list of national organisations or contact the SER Office who will try to find the information you require.
  • CR following a contact's name indicates they are considered the county recorder for the group either officially or unofficially.

National Organisations

The Staffordshire Biodiversity Action Plan maintains a list of national organisations, so I do not propose to duplicate that information here
