About this book

Language: German

This multi-volume work provides a comprehensive overview of the entire herpetofauna of Europe. Detailed species-specific data and information has been compiled for each reptile and amphibian species occurring in Europe. For species, specialists were approached to write the specific species chapter. Careful editing by the publisher has resulted in a uniformity of the entire work.

With this volume, the treatment of the most fascinating groups of vertebrates ever begins, the turtle. An introductory chapter provides information on the various hypotheses of its systematic position within the reptiles.

This is followed by a description of eight species from four different Taxa: genus Mauremys, tortoises (family Testudinidae), pond or marsh turtles (family Emydidae), and genus Pseudemys.

Each species chapter follows a uniform classification scheme. A large number of excellent drawings and detailed distribution maps support the text.

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

Mit diesem Band beginnt die Behandlung einer der faszinierendsten Wirbeltiergruppen überhaupt, den Schildkröten. Ein einführendes Kapitel gibt Auskunft über die verschiedenen Hypothesen ihrer systematischen Stellung innerhalb der Reptilien.

Es folgt die Beschreibung von acht Arten aus vier verschiedenen Gattungen: den Bach-, Land-, Sumpf- und Schmuckschildkröten.

Jedes Artkapitel wird nach dem bewährten einheitlichen Gliederungsschema abgehandelt. Eine große Zahl hervorragender Zeichnungen und detaillierter Verbreitungskarten unterstützen den Text.
