About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Italian

The Atlas of Italian Amphibians and Reptiles presents the distribution, ecology and conservation status of the 37 species of amphibians and the 50 species of reptiles found in Italy. A grid map is supplied for each species, on the basis of more than 70 000 records contributed by 900 collaborators during the Societas Herpetologica Italica survey project, started in 1994. Entries, illustrated with photos, are subdivided into the following headings: taxonomy, general distribution, comments to the distribution map, habitat, altitudinal distribution, annual activity cycle, reproduction and status of the Italian populations. General sections on biogeography, history of herpetology in Italy, paleoherpetology and herpetological fauna of the small Italian islands are also included.

Summary in Italian:
Il volume raccoglie le informazioni sulla distribuzione, l’ecologia e lo stato di conservazione delle 37 specie di anfibi e delle 50 specie di rettili che vivono sul territorio politico italiano. Per ogni specie è fornita una carta di distribuzione, su reticolo cartografico UTM 10 × 10 km, basata su oltre 70 000 dati raccolti con la collaborazione di 900 segnalatori nell’ambito di un progetto atlante avviato nel 1994 dalla Societas Herpetologica Italica. Le schede, corredate da una ricca iconografia, sono articolate in paragrafi riguardanti la tassonomia, la distribuzione altitudinale, il periodo di attività nell’anno, la riproduzione e lo status delle popolazioni in Italia. Completano il volume alcuni capitoli su aspetti generali quali la biogeografia, la storia dell’erpetologia italiana, la paleoerpetologia, l’erpetofauna delle piccole isole.
