9780198505655: The Millennium Atlas of Butterflies in Britain and Ireland

This full-color, superbly illustrated atlas presents the findings of Butterflies for the New Millennium, the most comprehensive survey of butterflies ever undertaken in Britain and Ireland. After five years of recording by thousands of volunteers, it provides an up-to-date assessment of our butterflies, the habitats they live in, the threats they face, and the major changes that have occurred since publication of the previous such atlas in 1984.
The body of the book is taken up with species accounts, each accompanied by a full-page distribution map and a color photograph of the butterfly concerned. A wider context is provided by considering long-term trends on distribution, derived from 200 years of recording and recent changes elsewhere and in Europe. In addition, the book summarizes the wealth of new information about butterfly ecology, incorportating findings from the Butterfly Monitoring Scheme, describes and illustrates the habitats favored by particular communities of butterflies, and presents a vision of how these popular insects might be conserved in the future. As such, it will be invaluable to a wide range of readers, from amateur naturalists to professional conservationists and policy makers.

About the Author:

The authors are all involved with the Butterfly Conservation Society, the butterfly equivalent of the RSPB; an organisation of some 8000 members which is the foremost body concerned with butterflies in the UK. Jim Asher has been a member of Butterfly Conservation since 1980 and a founder
member of Upper Thames Branch formed in 1982 (Branch Chairman, 1985- 1987). Initiated and ran the Upper Thames Butterfly Atlas project 1987-1993. He has been the National Recorder for Butterfly Conservation since 1993. Recording interests extend to photography of native butterflies in UK and
Europe, and local moth trapping. Dr Martin Warren has studied butterfly ecology and conservation for over 25 years, including research on several rare and threatened species. In 1999, he co-authored the first ever Red Data Book of European butterflies. Richard Fox has been the full-time
co-ordinator for the Butterflies for the New Millenium project, the survey that gave rise to this atlas, since 1997.

Review:


"[T]housands of volunteers have been working on the Butterflies for the New Millennium project . . . tirelessly mapping the distribution and numbers of our butterflies, and the first fruit of their work is The Millennium Atlas of Butterflies in Britain and Ireland . . ."--The London Times
