The first book devoted entirely to the reptiles of the region, French-language Les Reptiles des Pyrénées details the thirty-two protected reptile species of the Pyrenees Mountains in France, Spain, and Andorra. Resulting from a combination of field research, extensive literature surveys, and photographic reports, this book synthesizes several disciplines—including systematics, taxonomy, biogeography, and ecology—in one indispensable guide for naturalists, herpetologists, and managers of Pyrenean natural areas. Five-hundred original color photographs taken exclusively in situ at altitudes ranging from 2 to 3,143 meters illustrate information on the phenotypic variation and ecological characteristics of Pyrenean snakes, lizards, and turtles, while authoritative distribution maps complement biogeographic information. The book also highlights endemic species and subspecies, as well as those with special status (very localized, vulnerable, etc.), and details conservation threats.
Gilles Pottier is a biogeographer and ecologist specializing in the study of reptiles.
