About this book

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

The first Atlas of the Reptile Fauna of Luxembourg was published in 2007. Since then, and especially since 2010, intensive research has allowed for the collection of a large amount of new data. The present atlas summarizes the additional information. The native reptile fauna of Luxembourg currently comprises six species: Slow worm, Sand lizard, Viviparous lizard, Common wall lizard, Smooth snake and Grass snake. 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 × 5 km quadrats. Three periods of research are covered: data until 1999, from 2000 to 2009 and from 2010 to 2016. A particular chapter covers other taxa that have been either introduced to Luxembourg ("Amercian turtles"), have been recorded only once (Western whip snake), have been extinct for a long time (European pond terrapin) or have been mentioned in the literature but whose presence has not been confrmed in Luxembourg (Adder, Asp viper). Other chapters cover the historical research on reptiles in Luxembourg, the national legislation on protection, as well as conservation projects undertaken in Luxembourg. A new Red List of the reptiles of Luxembourg is presented: five species are considered as not threatened (Slow worm, Viviparous lizard, Common wall lizard, Grass snake and Smooth snake), one species is considered as nearly threatened (Sand lizard).
