Abstract

Interpretation of large-scale faunal and floral survey data is often frustrated by the bias caused by variation in recording intensity. Using distribution data for Odonata and Hepaticae from the Biological Records Centre, a technique for correcting this bias is described The method is used to locate species-rich hotspots for the two taxa and comparisons are made with uncorrected data.
