The majority of Butterfly Monitoring Schemes (BMS) have their own database to collect data and organize their own volunteers. However, an online data gathering system has now been provided by the Center for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) in collaboration with BCE

This provides a central online system or collecting butterfly data. We hope that the new system will be of particular benefit to new schemes and countries starting to monitor butterflies for the first time.

You can register a transect on the eBMS website and contribute to our knowledge of butterflies and to European butterfly indicators.
