About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

This beautiful and informative work constitutes the first photographic guide of the amphibians and reptiles of Portugal. The book contains more than 400 photographs, distribution maps and other visual elements that allow the reader to identify the species present in Portugal. In addition to the monographs of each species – including its description, distribution, biology, similar species, and other information – the book has chapters on habitats, the life cycle, and conservation of amphibians and reptiles.

In a country where these animals are especially threatened by habitat destruction from various sources, such as climate change and major fires, this guide helps stakeholders to observe, know and help protect the fragile ecosystems they occupy.

Summary in Portuguese:
Esta bela e informativa obra constitui o primeiro guia fotográfico dos anfíbios e répteis de Portugal, o qual é constituído por 320 páginas, mais de 400 fotografias, mapas de distribuição e outros elementos que permitem identificar as espécies presentes em Portugal. Para além da monografia de cada espécie - que inclui a sua descrição, distribuição, biologia, espécies similares, entre outra informação - o livro possui capítulos sobre os habitats, o ciclo de vida, a conservação dos anfíbios e répteis.

Num país onde estes animais se encontram especialmente ameaçados devido à destruição dos habitats por fenómenos diversos, com destaque para as alterações climáticas e os incêndios de grandes proporções, este guia ajuda os interessados a observar, conhecer e ajudar a proteger os ecossistemas frágeis que ocupam.
