All the literature concerning the Italian palaeoherpetofaunas is being collected.
Up to June 2003 more
than 700 articles, covering more than 200 years of research, have been identified.
Approximately 1150 data, obtained from the literature so far recovered, have been inserted in an Excel file.
For each datum (intended as taxon/site or better SPLOC -Species Per Locality OCcurrences- datum) the following information are listed: taxonomic allocation, chronological allocation, class,
order, family, site, province, region and references.
Papers authored by Italian researches and concerning non Italian herpetofaunas are also collected but their data are not
inserted in the database.
If you publish or encounter papers devoted to, or simply quoting, the Italian palaeoherpetofaunas, please, notify them to firstname.lastname@example.org
