The authors, from Nerc Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) and the Natural History Museum, London, reviewed 234 projects — ranging from small one-off local surveys to large-scale long-term programmes.

The review's authors also produced a guide offering advice on how to get the most out of citizen science projects.
