The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) is the leading charitable organisation promoting the enjoyment, study and conservation of wild plants in Britain and Ireland. We aim to build a diverse community of skilled and enthused botanists, provide data and science to help address biodiversity loss and climate change and disseminate information to drive a passion for plants. 


BSBI trains people in skills to find, identify and record wild plants, publishes botanical books and provides opportunities for involvement in a range of surveys and events. Our Distribution Database holds over 50 million plant records, making it one of the world’s largest biological recording databases. Our growing membership (over 4000 members) is open to all.
