We are delighted to be helping with the development of EMMA2, the second edition of the Atlas of European Mammals.
The first Atlas of European Mammals was published 20 years ago and is now out of print.
In 2015 some members of the original atlas editorial group proposed the idea of a second edition, updating information for the area already covered and extending the area to the whole of geographic Europe. Early discussions with mammalogists across Europe indicated that there was a high level of interest in this proposal and so an open meeting was held in Rome at the end of November 2016. Discussions at the meeting set the direction for the new project and work began on defining the scope of the project and recruiting volunteers across Europe to help with its delivery. The new Atlas will cover 42 countries, altogether an area of 11.59 million km2.
The project began last year and is due to complete in 2023. National databases are currently being set up.
