About this book

Language: Russian with English summaries and bilingual figure captions and table headings

Atlas of Breeding Waders in the Russian Arctic presents a summary and analysis of distribution of breeding waders (shorebirds, suborder Limicolae, order Charadriiformes) in the Russian Arctrctic, the region where begin almost all migration flyways of waders over-wintering on most continents. Atlas of Breeding Waders in the Russian Arctic has as its foundation an electronic Access database that contains and analyses breeding and abundance records of waders from 2859 locations collected over 150 years of research. These data come from 1360 published and unpublished sources including the mass of information accrued by the authors themselves.

Comprehensive accounts for each of the 51 wader species regularly breeding in the Russian Arctic are supplied with three maps generated in ArcView: map of breeding records, map of abundance and an extrapolated breeding distribution map. For the first time, we identify core (optimum) breeding areas for most wader species. The introductory chapters address the question of geographic boundaries of Atlas of Breeding Waders in the Russian Arctic region, discuss approaches to mapping breeding distribution, describe the methodology for surveying breeding waders and compare their results. The concluding chapter evaluates the historic trends in distribution and abundance of Arctic waders over the past 150 years. Atlas of Breeding Waders in the Russian Arctic aims at a broad readership including researchers – biologists and geographers, birdwatchers, and employees of wildlife and game management, conservation and protection agencies.

Media reviews

"Accurate documentation of numbers and distribution of Arctic breeding Charadrii is critical to their conservation throughout the world. The Russian Arctic is a remote and difficult place to obtain the details needed; however, it has attracted intrepid scientists for over 140 years. This major work has drawn together the results from almost 2900 seasonal studies across a vast area and presents the information in a clear, standard-sized format. [...] Inevitably, the work is primarily in Russian but the key information is well presented in clear English summaries for each of the six chapters on various topics, species accounts and tables. No doubt, a Russian speaker would obtain more from the text but I felt it was adequate. [...] The authors are to be congratulated on an impressive and valuable piece of work. I am sure that the many wader enthusiasts around the world will find much in it of relevance to their own research."
– Tony Prater, Ibis (2014), 156, 478–489

"[...] This atlas is a fantastic product and deserves a wide distribution among the English-speaking birding community. Although the text is in Russian, all 173 maps and tables have English titles and captions and each species chapter contains an extensive English summary. [...]"
