The EBCC Atlas of European Breeding Birds presents, for the very first time, an integrated picture of the distribution and abundance of the breeding birds of Europe. The book compiles and organizes bird survey data from all of Europe, bringing together a team of 450 authors from 38 countries, with an inventive team of artists providing lively illustrations of the various bird species. Over 100 regional and national atlases have been produced, surveying areas from such obscure regions as Madeira, the Azores, Iceland, Svalbard, Novaya Zemlya, Franz Josef Land and Transcaucasia--even parts of Russia and the Ukraine! A scale is included that describes present endangered species conservation status and enables the measurement of future nature conservation initiatives as well as informative graphs, charts, and maps that show species location and the various populations present. This book is an essential tool for managers and conservationists, as well as a source of great interest for all interested in the bird life of Europe.
