The NRDB is a compilation of observations of flora and fauna made at open space and nature preserves in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. The database can be searched for available data on flora, mammals, birds, and reptiles-amphibians-fishes seen at one or more preserves.

What Lists Have Been Updated? There have been many additions to the database, especially for flora in many preserves. If you have an older list for any preserve in the NRDB, you should check to see if has been updated. How do you check if you need a new list? In the March 2008 release of the NRDB we added Last Update information to the Preserves table. You can see when the last changes were made to species lists for each preserve by selecting Preserves under the Reports tab on our home page at www.nrdb.org and reviewing the Last Update column. You can quickly determine if your existing checklist is up to date!
