The Ground Beetles of Northern Ireland by Roy Anderson, Damian McFerran and Alastair Cameron
The first in a series of publications from CEDaR (Centre for Environmental Data and Recording), the Atlas gives a comprehensive account of the status and distribution of ground beetle species within Northern Ireland. Topics range from an exploration of ground conditions and soil types, to summaries of ground beetle distribution, ecology and biogeography. Whilst maps are reserved for the northern Irish species, detailed accounts of distribution and ecology are given for the whole Irish fauna. Potential threats to conservation and the work of the Environmentally Sensitive Areas (ESA) Schemes are among other topics discussed.
SPONSORS: Department of Agriculture and Rural Development for Northern Ireland; World Wildlife Fund; The Queen's University of Belfast and Environment & Heritage Service (An Agency within the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland).
The book is available from the National Museums of Northern Ireland and from all good bookshops priced £14.99 plus package and posting. Please note bank charges will apply if paying by BACS.
