About this book

Language: French

The lizard taking a sunbath, the grass snake which dives silently into the pond at the slightest warning, the green tree frogs which croak on spring evenings to attract females, amphibians and reptiles belong to the image of unspoiled nature. They also haunt our imagination populated by salamanders, dragons and snakes. Unfortunately, most native species are becoming scarce, with some even on the brink of extinction. The reasons for this regression are as diverse as the representatives of these two animal groups.

The book presents all the amphibians and reptiles of Switzerland, with criteria allowing their identification. The pages devoted to the different species allow you to discover their often discreet behaviour: how and where these animals live, what happens to them in winter, where to observe them, what their requirements are, what threats weigh on them and, the crucial question, what can we do to protect them?

The authors suggest measures to protect the landscape, but also give advice on how to encourage amphibians and reptiles in your own garden. Many protection programs are presented. It is worth living with snakes and toads.

Summary in French:
Le lézard qui prend un bain de soleil, la couleuvre qui plonge sans bruit dans l étang à la moindre alerte, les rainettes vertes qui crient les soirs de printemps pour attirer les femelles les amphibiens et les reptiles appartiennent à l image d une nature intacte. Ils hantent également notre imaginaire peuplé de salamandres, de dragons et de serpents. Malheureusement, la plupart des espèces indigènes se raréfient, certaines étant même au bord de l extinction. Les raisons de cette régression sont aussi diverses que les représentants de ces deux groupes animaux.

L'ouvrage présente toutes les amphibiens et reptiles de Suisse, avec des critères permettant leur détermination. Les pages consacrées aux différentes espèces permettent de découvrir leurs mœurs souvent discrètes : comment et où vivent ces animaux, que deviennent-ils en hiver, où les observer, quelles sont leurs exigences, quelles menaces pèsent sur eux et, question cruciale, que peut-on entreprendre pour les protéger ?

Les auteurs proposent des mesures de protection du paysage, mais donnent également des conseils pour favoriser les amphibiens et les reptiles dans son propre jardin. De nombreux programmes de protection sont présentés. Il vaut la peine de cohabiter avec les serpents et les crapauds.
