European Pond Turtle - Emys orbicularis

article diffusé

Emys orbicularis is the turtle with the widest distribution range in Europe. Its relationship with man has been a long and varying one, stretching from serving as food during times of fast durinf the Dark Ages to being regarded as an acutely threatened species in the present.

Manfred Rogner's book also show that it ranks amongst the most intensively researched reptiles in all countries where it occurs naturally, and that a multitude of successful institutional and private breeding and reintroduction projects appear to reduce the pressures on this species at present.
As a consequence, the aspects covered by this book range from conveying proven methods for successful captive propagation to a scientific portrayal of today's populations in the countries of its occurence.

This book provides brief accounts on the status of Emys orbicularis in the following countries or regions :

North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia); Iberian Peninsula (including the Balearic Islands); France (including Corsica); Belgium / The Netherlands / Luxemburg; Switzerland; Germany; Italy (including Sicily and Sardinia); Denmark; Austria; Czech Republic; Slovenia; Poland; Hungary; Slovakia; Albania; Greece; Romania; Lithuania; Latvia; Bulgaria; Ukraine; Belarus; Turkey; Russia and the Caucasus region.
