Atlas of Mammals in Ireland
Welcome to the Atlas of Mammals in Ireland website. This is an exciting new initiative which presents species accounts and distribution maps of the wild mammals that occur in Ireland and its territorial waters. The initiative pulls together data from existing recording initiatives and datasets to provide an overview of the current and historic distribution of Irish mammals. One of the primary aims of the initiative is to encourage recording of the commoner Irish mammals, so that a comprehensive picture of their distribution is achieved by 2015. This will then provide a baseline against which future changes to distribution can be tracked.
- 16 January 2014: The maps have been updated to include all records submitted up to the end of 2013. This includes a large dataset of mammal records provided by CEDaR, N. Ireland.
- 19 November 2013: All records received up to end of October 2013 have now been added to the database.
- 26 June 2013: Patrick Smiddy and Paddy Sleeman are updating the Irish Wild Mammals: A guide to the literature. For further information see the 'References' section of this website.
