About this book

Language: Catalan

Lizards have inhabited the Balearic Islands long before humans colonized these, and were able to survive the catastrophe that resulted from their arrival. That fact alone gives them a high biological value. In most islands of the Balearics lizards have had to adapt to living conditions that are often very inhospitable, difficult and different. That is why, after so many years of evolution, each island is home to lizards that are unique in the world. Balearic lizards are certainly a treasure of this natural heritage that must be recognized, valued and preserved.

But what do we know of the Balearic lizards? Where do they live? What do they eat? How many species are there? How is it that they are absent from a large island such as Mallorca, yet live on the islets? How and when did they arrive in the Balearics? All these questions and more are answered in this book.

Summary in Catalan:
Les sargantanes habitaven les Balears molt abans que els humans les colonitzassin i han sabut sobreviure a l’hecatombe que suposà la seva arribada. Per aquest sol fet ja tenen un gran valor biològic. A la majoria dels illots de les Balears hi ha sargantanes que s’han hagut d’adaptar a unes condicions de vida sovint molt inhòspites, difícils i diferents. Per això mateix, després de tants anys d’evolució, les sargantanes de cada illot són úniques i irrepetibles al món. Les sargantanes de les Balears són, amb certesa, un tresor del nostre patrimoni natural que cal conèixer, valorar i conservar.

Però, què sabem de les nostres sargantanes? On viuen? Què mengen? Quantes espècies n’hi ha? Com és que en una illa gran com Mallorca no n’hi ha, i als illots sí? Com i quan varen arribar les sargantanes a les Balears? Totes aquestes qüestions i moltes més es responen en aquest llibre.
