Herefordshire Insectivore Atlas

The Herefordshire Mammal Atlas was conceived many years ago, but has only been actively progressed since 2014.  The publication of the Herefordshire Insectivore Atlas is the third instalment towards HMG's goal of providing a comprehensive atlas of our all of our county's mammals.  This first edition of the Insectivore Atlas has been collated by several of HMG's leading experts.  It is intended to be a baseline document and one that will help us identify where future effort is required to obtain additional rodent records. 

The Herefordshire Insectivore Atlas is free to download here.  However, please be mindful that the content is copyright protected and should not be used without permission from HMG.
