Dielectronic recombination data for the beryllium isoelectronic sequence has been calculated as part of the assembly of a dielectronic recombination database necessary for modelling of dynamic finite-density plasmas (Badnell et al. 2003, A&A, 406, 1151). Dielectronic recombination coefficients for a selection of ions from this sequence are presented and the results discussed.

Key words: atomic data -- atomic processes -- plasmas
