Examples

  • Endemic amphibian species are also distributed in certain mountain areas where conifer and broadleaf forests occur (i.e. Salamandra salamandra corsica, Discoglossus montalentii, and Euproctus montanus).

    Corsican montane broadleaf and mixed forests

  • The fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra) is one of the largest species of salamander in the world; its range includes most of Europe, a portion of North Africa, and the Mediterranean Middle East.

    Biological diversity in the Mediterranean Basin

  • Yesterday I visited Bernie to compare dead stag beetles (go here for more on this) and to collect both my dead Fire salamander Salamandra salamandra, and an assortment of old stuffed birds (all of which are needed for a project on foot claw morphology: more on that in the future).

  • These include European fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra), olive midwife toad (Alytes obstetricans), and Mediterranean treefrog (Hyla meridionalis).

    Mediterranean conifer and mixed forests

  • An important number of endemic amphibian and reptile species appear in high mountain lakes, meadows, and rocky areas including Lacerta monticola cyreni, Salamandra salamandra almanzorensis, and Bufo bufo gredosicola.

    Iberian conifer forests

  • There are a number of endemic subspecies found in this ecoregion including the Gredos ibex (Capra pyrenaica victoriae) and a number of herpetofauna species, Lacerta monticola cyreni, Salamandra salamandra almanzorensis, and Bufo bufo gredosicola.

    Iberian conifer forests

  • Endemic amphibian species are also distributed in certain mountain areas where conifer and broadleaf forests occur, for example Salamandra salamandra corsica, Discoglossus montalentii, and Euproctus montanus.

    South Appenine mixed montane forests

  • The positive excesses will substantiate not only the proposed explanation by PROCESS but also actual species to pin down the culprit cell(s) for excessive reverberate iteration (onion, salamandra).

  • CONSEQUENCE: It is unlikely that the Purkinje cell causes the excess in lungfish, frogs, salamandra, etc. but very possible that the Purkinje cell growth, as an illustration of the RULE, might be found in some sub-species as excessively slow to build EXCEPTION.

    Another unintelligent move - The Panda's Thumb

  • It is to be remembered that the _salamandra aquatica_ of Ray (the water-newt or eft) will frequently bite at the angler's bait, and is often caught on his hook.
