Herpetofauna study
Herpetofauna in the Orikum Area
March 2001, by Web Team

There are no specific local publications on the herpetofauna of Orikum, however, in the up to now publications, especially on the geographical distribution of the amphibians and reptiles in Albania, there are references either by Albanian authors (Haxhiu, I. 1980, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991, 1991, 1994, 1994, 1995, 1998) and by foreign authors (Bruno, S., De Fejervary, G.J. 1923, Kopstein, F. &O. Wettsein, 1921).

Drainage, reclamation of agricultural land, intensification of the agriculture and burning of forests over the last decades have reduced the wetland area and as a consequence, have destroyed the habitats of many species of amphibians and reptiles.
