Illustrated card covers, New Book. First edition, pp 183, colour illustrations and maps, references, annex, index. The Mammal Atlas of North-East Scotland and the Cairngorms is a new publication published by NESBReC in Spring 2017. It is a fully-illustrated atlas that maps the 43 mammals that have been recorded in Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City, Moray and the Cairngorms National Park using 77,592 records from 1,472 observers from all over the area and beyond. The total area covered is 11,629 km2, which is around 15% of Scotland’s land area. It tells some fascinating stories of the many amazing mammals found throughout North-East Scotland, including the recovery of red squirrels, the recent significant spread of pine martens eastward to the outskirts of Aberdeen, and the discovery of a new bat species for the area. The information gathered is depicted in distribution maps for 43 mammal species covering the time periods from 1960-2000 and 2001-2015. Each map is accompanied by a photograph of the mammal and a short account of its ecology, conservation and status, in both the local and British Isles contexts. The book also includes information on mammal habitats, species conservation and analysis of distribution patterns.
