Our study was conducted in Tulcea County between August 2019 and November 2021.
Herpetofauna was identified in the dig-mal flood zone of the Danube River, between Grindu locality and Tulcea city and in the area ofthe Somova-Parches aquatic complex. The herpetofaunal study consisted of extensive transect surveys. The transects were made at distances that allow us to identify and monitor the target species according to the approved working methodologies.
During the investigation, seven species of amphibians and three species of reptiles were identified. For each species, the status of species protection has been established in accordance with the Habitats Directive 92/43 EEC, GEO 57/2007 and the EU Status.
This case study presents the distribution and abundance of species of community interest (Emys orbicularis, Bombina bombina and Triturus drobrogicus). A total of 534 individuals were identified during this period. Therefore, this study is a contribution to the knowledge of the distribution of species of Community interest in the area of ROSCI0065..
