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. The Atlas will be an invaluable source of information to mammal enthusiasts, professional ecologists, and policy makers alike.
