European Redlist Search for a Species Species ID
Acknowledgements

Coordination of the herpetological component of the European Red List was carried out by Neil Cox and Helen Temple (IUCN Species Programme). We received expert advice and assistance from Peter Paul van Dijk of the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group.

Simon Stuart, Jean-Christophe Vié, Craig Hilton-Taylor, Caroline Pollock and Mike Hoffmann provided guidance, encouragement, and good advice throughout the project. Nancy Lear, Ana Nieto, Teresa Oliveros Martinez, Hugo Ruiz Lozano, Sarah Wyatt provided substantial assistance with financial management of the project. Vineet Katariya, Jim Ragle, and Janice Chanson provided high-quality support on GIS and database issues.

We would like to thank our host organisation, Doğa Derneği, and most especially Özge Balkiz and Özgür Koç, for their extensive help with logistical arrangements, for their warm hospitality and for ensuring that the workshop ran smoothly. Workshop facilitators were Neil Cox, Jan Schipper, Helen Temple and Sarah Wyatt, assisted by Melanie Bilz and Ana Nieto.

Species accounts and maps were adapted from data compiled under the IUCN Global Amphibian Assessment and IUCN Global Reptile Assessment.

The European Reptile and Amphibian Assessments and consequently this report were requirements of the framework of a service contract with the European Commission (Service Contract No. 070307/2007/483288/MAR/B2). Additional support for the workshop was provided by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF). Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission, CEPF, or the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

The European Reptile and Amphibian Assessments were entirely dependent on more than 130 experts from over 40 countries in Europe and elsewhere, who generously gave of their time and knowledge. The enthusiasm and commitment of these people has enabled us to generate a comprehensive and detailed picture of reptile and amphibian status and trends in Europe.
