Special Issue "Herperofauna of Eurasia"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 947
Globally amphibians and reptiles are amongst the least studied groups. In the last couple of decades, the knowledge of diversity and conservation of herpetofauna has increased substantially, as many young scientists have been showing interest in these groups; however, there are still many gaps to fill. In addition to being the least studied groups, they are also among the most threatened, as they are facing multiple conservation challenges such as habitat loss, climate change, invasive species, disease, and pet trade.
Eurasia is the largest continental area on earth, it extends through all climatic zones of the Northern Hemisphere, and it is geologically, biologically, and culturally complex and diverse. This Special Issue will focus on the diversity of reptiles and amphibians in Eurasia, the threats they face, and conservation actions necessary for the protection of endangered species and their habitats.
