About this book

Language: English

Leading Maritimes bird experts describe the distribution, abundance, habitat and conservation of 222 species of birds nesting in the region between 2006 and 2010, beautifully illustrated by some of the Maritime’s finest wildlife photographers. Detailed maps show where each species occurs and how common it is, and where data allowed, indicate changes in distribution and abundance from the first Maritimes atlas (published in 1992).

With over 1,300 volunteers, 48,000 hours of survey effort, and 260,000 records for 222 species of breeding birds, this Maritimes atlas is one of the largest wildlife monitoring projects ever undertaken in the region. The Atlas owes its existence to the skill and dedication of citizen-scientists, organised by an amazing group of 30 volunteer Regional Coordinators, and a team of dedicated partners who analysed data, produced maps and text, and directed the book production.

This Atlas is the single most comprehensive, up-to-date information source on the status of Maritimes breeding birds. More than 260,000 records of 222 species are included in the database, including more than 8,700 records of 17 species at risk. Produced as a beautifully-illustrated hard-cover book, the Atlas will also be complemented by a comprehensive website where maps, results and much else will be accessible online.
