Grass Snake (Natrix natrix)

  von H. P. Eckstein

In 1986 the grass snake project was launched in Wuppertal. In a defined study area, data are taken about catch/re-catch, morphology,
biometry and ecology. Furthermore, data about locations and other information are collected (e.g. egg disposition places, hibernation
places of the grass snake).
