The Atlas of European Mammals

Published by Christopher Helm

The result of a ten year project by specialists throughout Europe, The Atlas of European Mammals is a meticulous work, researched and written by members of the Societas Europaea Mammalogica (SEM). AN expert Editorial Committee has supervised the collection and validation of distribution data for every country represented, using an agreed species list and a standard mapping system. Coverage for Europe is complete as far east as the border of the former Soviet Union and extends to the Canaries, Azores and Madeira.

Including a complete list of species for the whole of Europe, species profiles include information on distribution and habitat plus population and conservation status. The 194 species maps represent the most up-to-date picture of European distribution, providing a unique reference source for scientists, conservation, policy makers and natural history enthusiasts.
