Evaluation of reptile survey methodologies: final report. (ENRR200)

A three year study was done on a 20 hectare area of mature Calluna heathland in Wareham Forest, South Dorset between 1993 and 1995. An evaluation was made of the methods currently used by both professional and herpetologists to survey sites for the presence of reptiles with the aim of finding a standard method for surveying reptiles that would allow reptile population size estimates to be made for different sites and enable comparisons to be made both between sites and, over time, within sites.
