Overview

As the threats to wildlife of all kinds continue to increase, precise, timely information on species distribution becomes more and more
important. Until now, there has been no current integrated reference to the
distribution of mammals in Europe. The Atlas of European Mammals is the first project of the Societas Europaea Mammalogia (SEM), founded in Paris in 1988, and is the result of more than 10 years of work by specialists throughout Europe.

Under the supervision of an editorial committee, 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 plotted on a 50 km UTM grid and based entirely on field observations. Over 93,000 records are mapped with separate symbols for data collected before or after 1970. 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 of European Mammals also contains a complete species list for the whole European biogeographic region, with details of the international legal and conservation status of each species and their common names in 33 European languages. The Atlas thus represents a unique and essential reference source for scientists, conservationists, policy makers, and the interested amateur alike.

Key Features:
* Based on the very best and latest survey data
* The first and only Europe-wide map of mammal distribution
* Up-to-date information on the legal and conservation status of all 194 mammals found in Europe
* An essential reference written by specialist authors from all over Europe

"The primary intention of this atlas is to give as accurate a picture as possible of the current distribution of mammals in Europe. Maps of 194 species are accompanied by an illustration and comments about the species's distribution; habitat; population status; international, legal, and conservation status; and other information. A complete list of European mammals is followed by a lengthy multilingual bibliography. A late decision led to the helpful inclusion of the common names of all species in 33 different European languages." (LIBRARY JOURNAL, April 2000)

"With almost 500 pages covering 194 species, the book is a heavyweight work of reference, but its clear layout and species distribution mapping, concise information, and pen and ink sketches of each subject make it a database that can be dipped into and browsed for sheer enjoyment." (ENGLISH NATURE MAGAZINE, September 1999)

"Ten years in the making, The Atlas of European Mammals has all you need to know about 194 species, from Alpine chamois to brown hare and yellow-necked mouse." (BBC WILDLIFE, August 1999)

"This is another superb reference book from the Poyser stable and it is hard to imagine anything superseding it for many years to come. If you like mammals as well as birds, it should serve you very well indeed." (Gordon Hamlett in BIRD WATCHING, October 1999)

"Poyser's impressive Atlas of European Mammals [is] a stunning tome that looks at the distribution and population densities of 194 species of native and introduced mammals. Ten years of exhaustive research, by specialists throughout the continent, has gone into this book and it certainly seems to have been well worth it. For anyone fascinated by wild animals this book will doubtless become a great source of reference which will be dipped into time and time again." (THE GUARDIAN, November 1999)

"...the information provided is both pertinent and highly readable." (BIRDING WORLD, December 1999)

"...overall this is an incredibly valuable volume for anyone interested in European mammals, and the list of species with their legal and conservation
status is a useful bonus." (MAGAZINE OF THE MAMMALS SOCIETY, July 1999)

This book is an important tool for research and conservation of European mammals; it will undoubtedly stimulate much further work; and for many years to come it will remain an essential item in the library of any naturalist interested in mammals. —Habitat

Authoritative and thorough...presents the most up-to-date information on 194 species found in Europe, including the Baltic states, Kaliningrad, and the Canary, Azores, and Madeira Islands...
