About this book

Language: French

Describes and illustrates all the European species of salamander, frogs and tree frogs, toads, tortoises, turtles, and terrapins, geckoes, agamas, lizards, and chameleons, slow worms, skinks, amphisbaenians and the 25 species of snake. Every species and distinct subspecies is described in detail, with notes on range, size, colour and markings, diagnostic characters, habitat, behaviour and, in the case of venomous snakes, the type and virulence of its poison. A section deals with the identification of the eggs and tadpoles of frogs, toads, newts and salamanders. The whole of mainland Europe is covered, as well as the Mediterranean islands. The 48 colour plates are new and the text has been updated to include all recent research.

Summary in French:
Ce guide propose un panorama complet des espèces de reptiles et d'amphibiens d'Europe. Il présente les caractéristiques générales de ces deux classes (habitudes alimentaires, modes de reproduction, types d'habitats et de comportement), puis leurs descriptions par espèces. Salamandres, grenouilles, crapauds, lézards, caméléons ou serpents sont regroupés par familles et genres.

Les descriptions sont accompagnées de planches couleurs, schémas explicatifs et cartes de répartition entièrement mises à jour. Dans le cas des serpents, la virulence du venim est spécifiée. Enfin, une partie complète est consacrée aux oeufs et aux larves d'amphibiens.

La nouvelle édition du Guide Herpéto tient compte des progrès les plus récents de la connaissance, de la systématique et de la taxinomie des reptiles et amphibiens.
