Signposts and downloads for published local atlases about North West invertebrates
We are trying to make available or at least signpost all known published atlases on invertebrate groups of the Lancashire and Cheshire region and we are also keen to facilitate production of new and updated atlases with a budget set-aside to support publication costs. Please get in touch if you have a project idea that we might be able to assist with.
Species atlases normally comprise time-and-geographically-specific distribution maps for each species of a named taxon group, often with extensive additional information about the biological value of the geographical area and the status of species observed within it. These are particularly useful as a reliable statement of the knowledge base available at the time on which to base future comparisons.
