The Atlas of Mammals in Great Britain and Northern Ireland provides the most up-to-date distributions of both terrestrial and marine species. It uses more than 1.5 million mammal occurrence records that have been collated from all available sources for the period of 2000 to 2016. Differences between this time period and historical comparison periods are shown, so that assessments of changes in distributions can be made.

Fully illustrated with photographs, detailed high-resolution distribution maps are provided for 89 species, together with descriptions of their ecology and identification, and graphs showing the seasonal distribution of records. In addition, information is presented for 10 vagrant and 2 feral species. Atlas of the Mammals of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will be an invaluable source of information to mammal enthusiasts, professional ecologists, and policy makers alike.

A culmination of many years' worth of work in compiling data from records made in a variety of ways; from the old-fashioned method with pen and paper to taking advantage of modern developments in 'citizen science'. -- Gillian Birtles * BTO * ... a delightful book to look at .... I hope it's not another 30 years before someone else is brave enough to marshal an update. If they do then this Atlas will stand out as a clear mark in the sand to compare with. -- Ian Bond * ECOS * The best atlas that I have read... Not just a book of data, but a book that all naturalists will enjoy. -- Roy Stewart * Country-Side, British Naturalists Association *

Author Biography

The Mammal Society's mission is to achieve the effective conservation of the mammals of the UK. The restoration of thriving mammal communities not only contributes to more sustainable ecosystems but engages people with the natural environment. Established in 1954, we provide a national voice for mammal conservation and advise policy makers, practitioners and wildlife enthusiasts - many of whom have been responsible for collecting the information presented in this Atlas. Unlike many charitable organisations monitoring British wildlife, the Mammal Society receives no central government funding for our core work. Our activities to halt the decline of threatened species, monitor their conservation status, raise awareness of mammal conservation issues and advise on issues affecting British mammals, depend entirely on the generosity of our supporters.
