Based on more than 1.8 million records, this Atlas provides the most up-to-date information on the current distributions of both terrestrial and marine mammals in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
Many changes over time, such as the rapid invasion of the grey squirrel, the recovery of the pine marten and the decline of the water vole, are readily apparent from the detailed maps. Fully illustrated with photographs, detailed information is provided for 84 species, including descriptions of their ecology and identification, together with graphs showing the seasonal distribution of records.
Data are also presented for feral species, vagrants, and cetaceans that have only ever been found as strandings.
The Atlas will be an invaluable source of information to mammal enthusiasts, professional ecologists, and policy makers.
