The European Bird Census Council EBCC encourages further use of data collected for EBBA2 for conservation, research or communication. Any outputs published in the book or on the website should always be acknowledged with the source and the copyright (© EBCC).   

Types of data

  • Breeding occurrence at 50×50 km square scale

  • Breeding evidence (possible, probable and confirmed) at 50×50 km square scale

  • Abundance of species at 50×50 km square scale

  • Comparison with EBBA1 at 50×50 km scale, i.e. distribution change

  • Modelled probability of occurrence of selected species at 10×10 km scale

  • Raw data used to produce the modelled distribution maps at 10×10 km scale.

The different types of maps are illustrated in the Results section.

In order to understand the different types of data, please consult the Methods chapter in the published EBBA2 book:
