The new atlas of amphibians and reptiles of Italy. The atlas project of S.H.I. started in 1993 and led to the publication of the Atlas of amphibians and reptiles of Italy in 2006. Since 2013, citizen science platforms have been adopted to increase data collection. The new database contains 240,000 geo-referenced data often associated with images of the observed individuals. The database contains the records uploaded to Ornitho.it or iNaturalist, the data provided by the regional sections and by the members of S.H.I. and of course also the old database. The new atlas of amphibians and reptiles of Italy will deal with the distribution, it will discuss the doubtful locations of the atlas edited in 2006 and the areas with limited coverage. It will also present the extent of the Italian distribution of each species, the disjointed, insular, introduced, and extinct populations. The large amount of data collected will also make it possible to evaluate the altitudinal distribution and phenology. The new database will represent a useful tool for future S.H.I. monitoring projects.
