About this book

Language: French

This herpetological fauna of the Pyrenees is the result of a naturalistic work, combined with a literature survey and photographic report. It offers a wide summary of data from multiple disciplines (systematics, taxonomy, biology, ecology, ethology, phenology... ) on 32 protected species, hitherto scattered over a variety of sources (as evidenced by the bibliographic list of 763 references consulted) and on both sides of the mountain chain (Spain, Andorra and France). It also offers a completely original iconography, featuring individuals and habitats photographed in the Pyrenees. This is to illustrate as best as possible the phenotypic variation specific to the geographical area and the ecological peculiarities of the Pyrenean reptiles. Accurate distribution maps (on a UTM 10 km × 10 km grid), based on scientific sources, complement and illuminate the biogeographic material. The endemic and subendemic species and subspecies of the chain, as well as those who have a special status (very localized, threatened ...), were the subject of special attention, and the threats to these animals are described in-depth.

This book will be invaluable for naturalists and managers of natural areas of the chain (national parks, PNR, Natura 2000, reserves...), which will have here a wealth of information on the subject.

Summary in French:
Cette faune herpétologique des Pyrénées est le résultat d’une entreprise naturaliste combinant enquête bibliographique et reportage photographique. Elle propose une vaste synthèse de données relatives à de multiples champs disciplinaires (systématique, taxinomie, biologie, écologie, éthologie, phénologie…) concernant 32 espèces protégées, jusque-là dispersées sur une multitude de supports (comme en témoigne la liste des 763 références bibliographiques consultées) et concernant les deux versants de la chaîne (Espagne, Andorre et France). Elle offre par ailleurs une iconographie totalement originale, ne figurant que des individus et des habitats photographiés dans les Pyrénées. Ceci pour illustrer au mieux les variations phénotypiques propres à l’aire géographique concernée et les particularités écologiques des reptiles pyrénéens. Des cartes de répartition précises (mailles UTM 10 km × 10 km), reposant sur des sources scientifiques, complètent et éclairent le propos biogéographique. Les espèces et sous-espèces endémiques ou subendémiques de la chaîne, de même que celles qui y ont un statut particulier (très localisées, menacées…), ont fait l’objet d’une attention particulière et les menaces qui pèsent sur ces animaux sont largement exposées.

Cet ouvrage sera précieux pour les naturalistes et gestionnaires d’espaces naturels de la chaîne (parc national, PNR, Natura 2000, réserves…), qui disposeront là d’une mine d’informations sur le sujet.
