Atlas of German Breeding Birds
4,000 volunteers from 16 federal states recorded more than 70 million pairs of breeding birds
The Atlas of German Breeding Birds (Atlas Deutscher Brutvogelarten: ADEBAR) represents the first systematic and uniform approach to the recording of Germany′s breeding birds. Mapping began in 2005 and continued until 2009. From 2010 onwards all the information for the whole country was then collated and evaluated, the maps were created and the texts written. By integrating 16 German federal states - many of which have their own Atlas targets - the organizational effort and the time required was considerable. The Atlas finally went to press at the end of 2014. 221 bird species are represented each on a double page, or in the case of the 45 common species on two double pages; 45 more (occasionally breeding or extinct species) subsequently in short texts. The book was published in hardcover and includes 800 pages. All species chapter have high quality illustrations by the well-known bird painter Paschalis Dougalis.
