Based on 3047 records from 97 recorders distribution maps were drawn for the
amphibians and reptiles of central Poland (lirom 51°00’N to 52°15’N and from 18°20’E to
20°20’E). The study area was divided into 180 atlas fields based on the geographic grid. All
data were gathered in 1980-2000, most of them (67%) however, in 1995-2000. 13 taxa of
amphibians were found in 143 atlas fields and 6 species of reptiles were found in 121 atlas
fields. The amphibians were (given with the number of atlas fields with the species found):
