Description
Summary:In fulfillment of the requirements set down by the Ramsar Convention, a study of vertebrates along the River Tisa basin in Subcarpathia was performed. The study addressed only amphibians, reptiles and mammals. On the basis of our study we can summarize the results as follows: Instead of suffering from human impact, vertebrates of the flood area are diverse and are in abundance. The distribution of the species is as follows: amphibians, reptilians and mammals. The abundance of species is characteristic of the river valley, and is in accordance with the heterogeneity of the environment. The number of species varies along the river and the vertebrate fauna is the most abundant and diverse in the submontainous reaches.
