Des grenouilles vertes (Rana sp.) en Sardaigne

Article published in volume 2 fascicle 2, of 06/1983, pages 53 - 54



Green frogs are not native to Sardinia, but they have been imported from several Italian provinces between 1879 and 1960. According to recent literature, they are considered to have disappeared since. In 1982, green frogs were found again in northern Sardinia and it is likely that they are survivors from previous introductions. Their specific status has still to be defined.
