About this book

The first project of theSocietas Europaea Mammalogia (SEM), and is the result of more than 10 years of work by specialists throughout Europe. Coordinators have collected and validated distribution data for every European country using an agreed species list and a standard mapping system. This landmark volume presents maps of 194 species, based entirely on field observations. Over 93 000 records are mapped with separate symbols for data collected before or after 1970, and where appropriate, recent extinctions have been taken into account so that these maps represent the most up-to-date picture possible of the distribution of each species in Europe. Specialist authors have complemented the maps with a brief overview of each species, including details of distribution, habitat and population status. As well as the maps and species accounts, the atlas also contains a complete species list for the whole European bibliographic region, with details of the international legal and conservation status of each species and their common names in 33 European languages.
