RAVON , Volume 12 - Issue 4 p. 63- 69
Habitat types of the sand lizard and the common lizard in the province of Overijssel. In the period 1998-2008 observations of the sand lizard and the common lizard were collected in the province of Overijssel. The sand lizard was found in 44 grid cells of 1x1 km, the common lizard in 245. Special attention was payed to the habitat types of both species. In a number of habitats surface temperatures were measured with the help of alcohol thermometers. On the base of phytosociological relevées the various habitats were described in terms of vegetation types (Braun- Blanquet approach). For the sand lizard and the common lizard 8 and 21 habitat types respectively could be discerned (table 1 and 2). Both lizards were usually found in habitats where high maximum temperatures and great differences in microclimate occur.
