Bilal Kutrup    

Abstract: During a two-years survey of amphibian and reptilian species and their habitats in Murgul, Artvin a total of 22 species were recorded. In the investigated species were, six tailless amphibians, two tailed amphibians, six lizards, and eight snakes. The habitats of Vipera ammodytes transcaucasiana, Triturus vittatus ophryticus, Coluber najadum, Lacerta clarkorum, and Lacerta trilineata are threatened by a dam being constructed between Borçka and Erenköy. Furthermore, it should be pointed out that some compliant species such as Elaphia hohenackeri, Coronella austriaca, Rana macrocnemis and Anguis fragilis are being threatened by local people.
