About this book

Language: German, with trilingual abstract in English, French, and German

The first Atlas of the Amphibian Fauna of Luxembourg was published in 2003. Since then, and especially since 2010, intensive research and the use of new survey methods (newt traps) have allowed for the collection of a large amount of new data. The present atlas summarizes the additional information. The native anuran and urodele fauna of Luxembourg currently comprises 13 taxa: Fire Salamander, Alpine Newt, Smooth Newt, Palmate Newt, Great Crested Newt, Midwife Toad, Yellow-bellied Toad, Common Toad, Natterjack Toad, Common Tree Frog, Common Frog, Pool Frog and Edible Frog. For each of these species a chapter provides information on its characteristics, its current and historical distribution in Luxembourg and bordering regions, as well as its biology, habitat, threats and conservation measures. A map illustrates the distribution of each taxon on 5 x 5 km quadrats. Three periods of research are covered: data until 1996, from 1997 to 2003 and from 2004 to 2015. A particular chapter covers eight other taxa which have been either introduced to Luxembourg (Marsh Frog), have been recorded only once (Parsley Frog) or have been mentioned but their presence has not been verified in Luxembourg (Agile Frog, Green Toad, Moor Frog, Fire-bellied Toad, Alpine Salamander). Other chapters cover the historical research of amphibians in Luxembourg, the national legislation on protection, as well as conservation projects undertaken in Luxembourg. A new Red List of the amphibians of Luxembourg is presented: nine species are considered as not threatened (Fire Salamander, Alpine Newt, Smooth Newt, Palmate Newt, Warty Newt, Common Toad, Common Frog, Pool Frog and Edible Frog), one species (Common Spadefoot) is regionally extinct, three species are considered as endangered (Yellow-bellied Toad, Natterjack Toad, Common Tree Frog) and one species (Midwife Toad) is considered as nearly threatened.
