About this book

Language: German

This multi-volume work provides a comprehensive overview of the entire herpetofauna of Europe. For each reptile and amphibian species found in Europe, detailed species-specific data and information are compiled. As authors, specialists were consulted for the treatment of each species. The careful editing by the publishers leads to a great unity of the complete work.

This subdivided volume of the work includes the second part of the snakes. It is a direct continuation of Volume 3 / I, in which the first part of the adders has already been discussed. This further part of the third volume contains such widespread species as grass snake and dice snake, but also provides extensive information on lesser known species such as the Montpellier snake and the European cat snake. The vipers are dealt with in another band section (3/llB).

The individual species chapters are structured in the same way as in the previous volumes, so that a direct comparison of the biological facts is guaranteed.

Summary in German:
Dieses mehrbändige Werk bietet einen umfassenden Überblick über die gesamte Herpetofauna Europas. Für jede in Europa vorkommende Art der Reptilien und Amphibien sind ausführliche artspezifische Daten und Informationen zusammengestellt. Als Autoren wurden für die Behandlungder einzelnen Arten jeweils Spezialisten gewonnen. Die sorgfältige Bearbeitung durch die Herausgeber führt zu einer großen Einheitlichkeit des Gesamtwerkes.

Dieser nochmals unterteilte Band des Werkes umfaßt den zweiten Teil der Schlangen. Es handelt sich dabei um eine direkte Fortsetzung des Bandes 3/I, in dem der erste Teil der Nattern bereits besprochen wurde. Dieser weitere Teil des dritten Bandes enthält so weit verbreitete Arten wie Ringel- und Würfelnatter, bietet aber auch umfassende Informationen zu weniger bekannten Arten, wie Eidechsen- und Katzennatter. Die Vipern werden in einem weiteren Bandteil (3/llB) abgehandelt.

Die einzelnen Artkapitel sind nach dem gleichen Schema wie in den vorangegangenen Bänden strukturiert, so daß ein direkter Vergleich der biologischen Fakten gewährleistet ist.
