Scottish Biodiversity Stories

fife

An on-line project hosted by the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh and sponsored by Scottish Natural Heritage provides a searchable data base of audio and textual stories and information about Scottish species.   The sources for these stories, and story-material, vary from interviews with elders, to scientific documents, to Scottish literature, to collections of traditional and folk stories.  The project focuses on species that have been identified as important ecologically or culturally, or that are under threat.

The database can be searched by species, by habitat or by relationship to people.  While these materials are in raw form, their eclectic nature makes the database an invaluable on-line tool for developing stories related to biodiversity in Scotland.
