“Biodiversity’s not just one plant on its own, it’s a whole group of ecosystems together. You need to either protect or look after these ecosystems to allow a specific plant species to survive. You have to look at the whole broad spectrum of things, and the way to do that is to use information that’s collected from all different scales with GIS.”—Malcolm Penn, Botanist and GIS Manager, Natural History Museum, London
