The book will include chapters on habitats, climate, islands and nature reserves etc. as well as individual species accounts and clear maps showing current distribution and historical distribution changes. It will be produced and published by Liverpool University Press. There will be a total of 512 pages – expanded from the original 480 first planned.
We aim to produce this publication on a financial break-even basis. The project will be run at minimal administrative costs from the Society’s reserves, but in order to meet the production and publication costs of around £25,000 and ensure that the retail cost is kept to a reasonable level we are inviting businesses, organisations and individuals to sponsor each species on the current Welsh list. Details of the species sponsorship scheme can be found here.
