About this book

Language: French

Frogs, toads, newts, salamanders, turtles, lizards and snakes. This guide offers the first complete overview of amphibians and reptiles in the department of Tarn-et-Garonne in the southwest of France.

It is embellished with an abundant iconography: more than 180 photographs of the species and their living environments, as well as more than 100 maps and figures. The 11 species of amphibians and the 13 species of reptiles recorded at the beginning of the 21st century in Tarn-et-Garonne are the subject of detailed monographs, allowing their identification, and an inventory of their distribution is drawn up that reveals aspects unknown to these animals.

While this book is intended for both curious amateur and seasoned naturalists, it is also a decision-making tool for taking into account these endangered animals during urban planning, such as when planning business parks, subdivisions, or linear infrastructures such as (rail)roads.

Summary in French:
Grenouilles, crapauds, tritons, salamandres, tortues, lézards et serpents. Ce guide propose le premier panorama complet des amphibiens et des reptiles du département de Tarn-et-Garonne.

Il est agrémenté d'une abondante iconographie : plus de 180 photographies des espèces et de leurs milieux de vie, ainsi que plus de 100 cartes et figures. Les 11 espèces d'amphibiens et les 13 espèces de reptiles recensées en ce début de XXIe siècle en Tarn-et-Garonne font l'objet de monographies détaillées, permettant leur identification, dressant un état des lieux de leur répartition départementale et révélant des aspects méconnus de ces animaux.

Si cet ouvrage s'adresse aussi bien aux simples curieux qu'aux naturalistes confirmés, il se veut également un outil d'aide à la décision pour la prise en compte de ces animaux menacés dans les projets de planification et d'aménagement du territoire: documents d'urbanisme, parcs d'activités, lotissements, infrastructures linéaires.
