About this book

Language: French

The biodiversity of the Comoros archipelago is still largely unknown to the general public, even though this archipelago is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, alongside Madagascar. The urgency of conservation is strong, and we must do more than ever to counter human pressures and global warming.

This book aims to compile a complete inventory of amphibians (2 species) and terrestrial reptiles (31 species) that colonized the Comoros archipelago and is therefore an essential knowledge tool for the preservation of its herpetological biodiversity. The authors have gathered all existing knowledge concerning the description, biology, ecology and distribution of species; this first atlas integrates in particular data from observations made during field campaigns carried out in 2018 and 2019 on the four islands of the archipelago.

The project was co-financed by the European BEST-RUP Fund and the Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund (CEPF). It is the result of a fruitful collaboration between France (Mayotte), Germany (Zoological Museum of Munich) and the Union of the Comoros (Anjouan, Grande Comore, Mohéli), and combines the efforts of professional naturalists and local amateurs.

Summary in French:
La biodiversité de l’archipel des Comores est encore largement méconnue du grand public alors que cet archipel compte parmi les points chauds mondiaux de biodiversité, aux côtés de Madagascar. L’urgence de la conservation y est forte, et doit faire plus que jamais écho aux pressions humaines et au réchauffement climatique.

Le présent ouvrage s’attache à dresser un inventaire complet des amphibiens (2 espèces) et des reptiles terrestres (31 espèces) qui ont colonisé l’archipel des Comores et constitue à ce titre un outil de connaissance essentiel pour la sauvegarde de sa biodiversité herpétologique. Les auteurs ont rassemblé toutes les connaissances existantes concernant la description, la biologie, l’écologie et la répartition des espèces ; ce premier atlas intégrant notamment les données d’observations issues des campagnes de terrain menées en 2018 et 2019 sur les quatre îles de l’archipel.

Le projet a été cofinancé par le fonds européen BEST-RUP et le CEPF (Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund). Il est le résultat d’une collaboration fructueuse entre la France (Mayotte), l’Allemagne (Muséum Zoologique de Munich) et l’Union des Comores (Anjouan, Grande Comore, Mohéli), et conjugue les efforts de l’ensemble des naturalistes professionnels et amateurs localement implantés.
