Editor: Thierry Onkelinx

The Zoogdierenwerkgroep wants, as an hornour to Franky Bonne, dedicate this publication to him. He was one of the most actif persons behind this project. Unfortunatly Franky passed away on 8 septembre 1997, so he will never see the final result of the countless hours of his work.

The main part of this atlas is in Dutch. The links in the table of contens here below will lead you to a description (in Dutch) of the species and a distributionmap. The maps are based on the recordings collected by the Zoogdierenwerkgroep (ZWG). At this moment we have already 22.000 recordings processed. All recordings shown on the maps were made from 1986 until now. For more information you can send an e-mail to: Thierry.Onkelinx@advalvas.be
Caution: these maps where made in december 1997 and where published in ONKELINX, T. (1997) Voorlopige atlas van de Vlaamse zoogdieren. Euglena 16 (6) extra nummer, Jeugdbond voor Natuurstudie en Milieubescherming, Gent
