Published as a partnership between the European Bird Census Council (EBCC) and Lynx Edicions.

More than 20 years after the publication of the first European Breeding Bird Atlas (EBBA1) , this book is the most up-to-date source of information on distribution, abundance and change of bird populations in Europe. A tremendous effort by the European Bird Census Council and its partner organisations from 48 countries have made it possible. In total, around 120,000 fieldworkers contributed data to the atlas, mainly from 2013 to 2017. As such this project constitutes one of the biggest citizen science projects on biodiversity ever.

This huge fieldwork effort resulted in unprecedented geographical coverage for a biodiversity atlas in Europe, including all areas up to the Ural Mountains and the Caspian Sea that were not well covered for EBBA1.

This book presents information on all species reported to breed in the study period. A total of 556 species are treated with a full species account including maps, text and an illustration. Full species accounts include 50 x 50 km maps (usually showing abundance data), modelled distribution maps with a resolution of 10 x 10 km (for 224 breeding birds) and change maps (comparing current

distribution with that obtained 30 years ago).

Original artwork illustrates all species with a full account. Illustrations were provided by 45 artists from 18 countries, with different styles and techniques, reflecting European diversity.

This book represents the most up-to-date source of information on bird distribution and change in Europe, and a great contribution to the global aim of understanding biodiversity with the final aim to encourage the effective conservation of birds and their habitats.
