The 10-km square dot-distribution maps, based on 30 years’ recording by members of the British Bryological Society, were produced at the Biological Records Centre, ITE, Monks Wood. Each species’ map is accompanied by notes on its habitat, reproductive biology and overseas distribution, and additional maps are included to illustrate various factors affecting distribution. Each volume contains an introductory chapter and concludes with a bibliography and index to species.

Recently, the New Atlas of Amphibians and Reptiles of Europe was published (Sillero et al., 2014a). We refer to this publication as ‘the new atlas’ throughout this paper. One of the aims of the new atlas was to identify gaps in the currently available knowledge on species distributions. Such

One of the aims of the recently published New Atlas of Amphibians and Reptiles of Europe (Sillero et al., 2014a) is to identify gaps in the currently available knowledge on species distributions. Such knowledge gaps are particularly prevalent where taxonomic progress has resulted in the splitting

Monitoring changes in species distribution and abundance is fundamental to understand the consequences of human actions and formulate wildlife management strategies. Atlas data are often used by conservation biologists as an important resource to assess the conservation status of endangered

An Analysis of their Distribution, Biogeography, Diversity and Conservation Status
Authors: Aljos Farjon and Denis Filer
A 2014 Choice Magazine "Outstanding Academic Title"

An Atlas of the World's Conifers is the first ever atlas of all known conifer species. It is based on locality information of ca. 37,000 collected herbarium specimens held in scientific institutions. As well as providing natural distribution maps for each species, Farjon and Filer give the reader comprehensive insight into the biogeography, diversity and conservation status of conifers on all continents, dispelling the widely held view that they are primarily a northern boreal plant group. Conifer diversity is analysed and presented with a taxonomic and geographic perspective. Distribution patterns are interpreted using the latest information on continental drift, dispersal and phylogeny. The entire dataset supporting the Atlas can be consulted and verified online. These data can also be used for further research and are an invaluable resource for anyone working on conifer systematics, biogeography or conservation.

An Atlas of the World’s Conifers indicates the known distribution of all conifers including an analysis of their biogeography, diversity and conservation status.

Also available from Brill is Aljos Farjon’s A Handbook of the World's Conifers, published in 2010 (ISBN 978 90 04 17718 5) which is a 2017 Choice Magazine "Outstanding Academic Title".
The Atlas of the Hoverflies of Greece is the first of a kind within the Mediterranean region. It is the result of decades of research, many travels into the fascinating habitats of Greece (a biodiversity hotspot), visits to world museums, and many people’s passion for hoverflies.
The Atlas is a concise presentation of all 418 hoverfly species for Greece known so far. The species are documented with photos and distribution GIS-maps and they are preceded by a general introduction on the hoverflies and Greek nature, and a generic key.
The Atlas of the Hoverflies of Greece is a handbook for insect aficionados, students and teachers, everyone interested in nature, and managers and conservationists aiming at raising public awareness of a nature nowadays threatened more than ever.

Published in association with the Conchological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, this atlas is the culmination of nearly forty years’ work by its members in almost every corner of the British Isles, resulting in an impressively thorough coverage based on the 10km square.
The Introduction includes Early History of Recording; The Mapping Scheme; Factors Influencing Distribution; History of the British Fauna; and the Future. The dot-distribution maps, generated in 1998 by the Biological Records Centre, ITE, Monks Wood, cover all species, whether native or introduced and naturalized, and are accompanied by notes on their habitat, history (including fossil occurrence), British status and overseas distribution, and include a small black-and-white illustration of each species. A select Bibliography; six maps illustrating relevant environmental factors; Localities mentioned in the text with their grid references; List of Recorders; and an Index complete the work.
