We are grateful to a large number of persons who have contributed or facilitated data, ideas information, and discussions to this project:

Our project was based on a varied set of national and regional atlases. We are therefore very grateful to the different societies and the atlas coordinators: We deeply thank the thousands of volunteers that contributed to the atlases and distribution databases. List of names can be found through their relevant societies and local atlases. This research project was funded by Societas Europaea Herpetologica (SEH) and supported by Instituto Superior da Maia, ISMAI.
