Dear Forum members,

We are working pretty hard on gathering all available data on the herpetofauna of Albania. We just want to ask you, if someone have observations from the country please send us. Now we have more than 3400 records in our dataset from all reptile and amphibian species occur in Albania. We georeferred the available literature, and other data from observers.

Hi everyone, my name is Marci and I'm also working on this project with Edvárd. I want to say thank you for everybody who sent articles or field data for us, or just watched this topic. Now we get some articles from our hunting list, some biodiversity reports, and also got this two new ones:

Denoël M Duguet R Dzukic G Kalezic M Mazzotti S 2001: Biogeography and ecology of paedomorphosis in Triturus alpestris (Amphibia, Caudata) – Journal of Biogeography 28: 1271-1280

Podnar M Mađarić BB Mayer W 2013: Non-corcondant phylogeographical patterns of three widely codistributed endemic Western Balkan lacertid lizards (Reptilia, Lacertidae) shaped by specific habitat requirements and different responses to Pleistocene climatic oscillations – Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research 51 (4): 1-11

We have a new hunting list:

Frommhold E 1959: Als Tiergärtner und Herpetologie in Albanien – Aquar. Terrar. 6:115-118, 144-147

Frommhold E 1962: Herpetologische Studien in Albanien – Aquar.Terrar. 9 (12) 365-370

Gayda H 1940: Su alcuni anffibi e rettili dell'Albania esistenti nei Museo Zoologico di Berlino Atti Soc.It.Sc.Nat.e Museo Civ.St.Nat.Milano LXXIX 4 262-272

Schneider H & Haxhiu I 1994: Mating-call analysis and taxonomy of the water frogs in Albania (Anura: Ranidae)

If you have one of these, or any other article not on this list, or you have field observation data please send to Edvárd's email adress: edvardmizsei_at_gmail_dot_com.

Thank you:
