About this book

Language: Catalan

Between 2012 and 2016, ornithologists from the Societat Valenciana d'Ornitologia surveyed a large part of the 515 5-kilometre squares making up the Valencian territory. These censuses were conducted to answer two basic questions: how are Valencian birds distributed, and how many individuals or pairs of each species are present in this environment? One of the most unique aspects of the atlas is that it covers all the annual periods and all the species detected in Valencia, containing distribution maps of up to 477 species of resident, migrant, summering, and wintering birds.

The atlas is an indispensable tool both to bring the knowledge of Valencian birds closer to the public and for the proper management of the territory and its biodiversity. On the one hand, it contains spatial information at a level of detail that did not exist until now and therefore provides more accurate complementary data than those in the atlases that cover wider territories. The second interesting aspect is that it is focused on the long term, and therefore a large part of the information contained in it will continue to be valid for many years. This content can help environmental administrations identify areas that should become a priority for conservation, and perhaps also to identify potential spaces for habitat restoration and recovery of the lost distribution ranges of many species.

Summary in Catalan:
Entre els anys 2012 i 2016, ornitòlegs de la Societat Valenciana d'Ornitologia van recórrer a peu una bona part dels 515 quadrats de 5 kilòmetres de costat dels quals consta el territori valencià, mitjançant la realització de censos per a donar resposta a dues preguntes bàsiques: com es distribueixen els ocells valencians, i quants individus o parelles de cada espècie hi ha en aquest entorn. Un dels aspectes més singulars de l'atles és que abasta tots els períodes anuals i totes les espècies detectades a València, contenint mapes de presència de fins a 477 espècies d'ocells entre residents, migrants, estivals i hivernants.

L'atles constitueix una eina indispensable tant per a acostar al públic el coneixement dels ocells valencians com per a una adequada gestió del territori i la seua biodiversitat. Per una part, conté informació espacial a un nivell de detall que fins ara no hi havia, i per tant, subministra dades complementàries més precises que les dels atles que cobreixen territoris més amples. El segon aspecte interessant és que està enfocat a llarg termini, i per tant una gran part de la informació continguda en ell continuarà estant vigent durant molts anys. Aquest contingut pot ajudar a les administracions ambientals a identificar àrees que haurien d'esdevenir prioritàries per a la conservació, i potser també per a la identificació d'espais potencials per a la restauració d'hàbitats i la recuperació de rangs de distribució perduts en moltes espècies.
