Presenting an integrated picture of the distribution and abundance of the breeding birds of Europe, this text compiles and organizes bird survey data from all over Europe. Over 100 regional and national atlases have been produced, surveying areas from such obscure regions as Madeira and the Azores. It describes the present and allows the reader to predict success of future conservation initiatives and the failures of further habitat loss and degradation.

Reviews for The EBCC Atlas of European Breeding Birds: Their Distribution and Abundance
Westria is back! Fans of the series will rejoice, and it's sure to win new readers to a wonderful series. Paxson's sense of place in post-apocalypse southwestern North America is exquisite, but even stronger is her characterization. The passions of the new generation ring so true. . . . I love this book--could not put it down. --Sherwood Smith on The Golden Hills of Westria <br> The civilization, ritual, customs, etc. are so carefully built up and skillfully fitted together that this might be an authentic legend of another time and place. Truly it holds one spell-bound, in the old meaning of that word. --Andre Norton on The Mistress of the Jewels <br> A new Paxson and a new Westria: what a treat! A generation later, this is better than ever. The action is intense, but so is the spirituality: the joys and woes of the scions of Westria are epic, but also as real and human as anything the rest of us have to deal with. It rounds off the original saga, but also promises the possibility of a fascinating future. -Kage Baker on The Golden Hills of Westria <br> Diana L. Paxson skillfully weaves together a page-turner plot, complex characters, compelling and timely social issues, and an unforgettable world based on deeply spiritual values. Fans of her previous Westria novels will rejoice at this new, immensely rich addition to that saga, and readers who have not yet sampled Westria's delights are in for a real treat. -Deborah J. Ross, co-author of A Flame in Hali on The Golden Hills of Westria <br> This is a complex tale, interweaving the political and religious conflicts of the sixth century. . .breathes life and wonder into one of the most romantic of the CelticGermaniclegends. -- Publishers Weekly on The White Raven <br> As intricate and colorful as a Saxon brooch, the tale of Sigfrid and Brunahild leaps to life in Diana Paxson's masterly retelling. --Stephen R. Lawhead, author of The Pendragon Cycle on The Wolf and the Raven <br>
