Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service - Press Release


On the 1st April 2016 SBRC changed its name to Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service (SBIS). This marks the incorporation of Biodiversity advice into the range of services we offer. The new name also emphasises service provision rather than the ‘dusty cupboard’ impression given by ‘Centre’. SBIS will continue to collect, collate and manage information on the natural environment and to share that information with people in Suffolk who need it for decision making, conservation and education.


Interactive Japanese Knotweed Map Launch Interactive Japanese Knotweed Map. A new interactive map has been launched allowing users to see Japanese Knotweed cases in their local area by postcode. The map utilises records from SBIS and other NBN Atlas partners to show confirmed cases of the plant in the UK. While it is widely known for its capacity to cause structural damage to property, the invasive plant can also cause damage to watercourses and displace native vegetation.
