A contribution to the atlas of the terrestrial herpetofauna of Sardinia
Herpetology Notes, volume 5: 391-405 (2012) (published online on 6 September 2012)

Abstract. Here we report on the combined observations of 10 years of opportunistic field work conducted during short visits
to Sardinia, from 1999 to 2012. A total amount of 433 distribution records of 27 species were collected from 187 different
localities covering 52 unique UTM squares. We report species presence in 157 new UTM squares and additionally reconfirm
previous reported presence in 150 UTM squares. Overall, we produce a remarkable increase in the knowledge of the Sardinian
herpetofauna. Notes and observations on ecology, taxonomy and conservation are provided.

Keywords. Italy, amphibian, reptile, endemism, conservation, distribution atlas.

How come Sardinia was that under-surveyed?

What do you use for that, Mario? Adobe? Not without considerable loss of resolution/quality...
