Biology, ecology, and conservation of an Amphibian exclusive of the Alps
A volume dedicated to Lanza's Alpine Salamander, one of the most recent vertebrate species discovered in Europe: its official description dates back to the late 1980s and it has been named after Benedetto Lanza, a doctor and naturalist from Florence who devoted himself to the study of herpetology (the science studying Amphibians and Reptiles). As a matter of fact, only in those years zoologists realized that the salamander specimens of the upper Po Valley were different from the black salamander, a species with which Lanza's Alpine Salamander had been mistaken: in particular, they were bigger, less tapered, and with a rounded tail tip. The volume consists of a general section on this species and the mountain amphibians living in the Park and a special section containing the data of the research activities carried out in the Po Valley.
