A huge study by Rob Ewers from 2007, just uploaded by Charlotte Chng, has pushed the database past 2.5 million records for the first time. We now have 22,627 sites from 93 countries, and are rapidly closing in on 40,000 species in the database - including over 6,000 beetle species. Around half of our species are arthropods, and most of the rest are plants. We are pushing hard to add studies to the database in time for the first full release, which will be later this year. Thanks as ever to everyone who has contributed!
