Kent mammal atlas

Thursday, 07 January 2010 12:46

The process of getting our Atlas together has started and by mid Jan 2010 all records held by the Kent & Medway Biological Records Centre (see map) will have been verified by the Atlas Sub Committee of Kent Mammal Group. The map displayed here shows all mammal records held by KMBRC, the different colours representing different species and square size variability relates to the recording method used.

You can see that there is plenty of white places - these represent areas with no mammal records held by KMBRC. In the spring/summer of 2010 we will be merging several thousand more of our own records with those held by KMBRC so there should be less of the white. Once we can see where they white (no records areas) remain the plan is then to target these places with survey work over the next couple of years so as to reduce the uncertainty of mammal distribution in Kent.

In the next issue of the Newsletter I will show a map of the records we are inputting to KMBRC in 2010 and what the merged KMBRC/KMG mammal map looks like.

Happy mammaling
