In this volume of the series Fauna Helvetica, contributions by many authors inform on the 84 species known for Switzerland. This atlas assesses the actual knowledge about distribution and ecology of the species and subspecies present in Switzerland. The large amount of new and original data which was collected during the reevaluation of the Red Data List have also been taken into consideration. A description of the threats which endanger the Red Data List species and a catalogue of protection and maintenance measures to be put into practice complete this atlas.
Contains previously unpublished colour illustrations by Paul-Andre Robert.
