GiGL collates species data collected at any time in Greater London.
We tend to term our records that are older than 10 years 'historic'. These records are still very useful though they are not recent.
Currently our oldest records in the GiGL partnership data are Fly Orchid and Annual Knawel recorded in 1713.
The database even includes some of Darwin's own records from his studies and observations in Bromley in the 1800s.
The majority of our 'historic' records however are from the last 20 years, and have a number of uses.
These individuals may be longer living species that are still around, or they may represent populations that are no longer found at a site, or they can give clues as to where the same species can be found today.
If you have archived records you've collected in the past from Greater London that you don't think are in the partnership database, get in touch and we can discuss adding them.
