Vipera Bornmuelleri - Geographic Range

Geographic Range

It is found in high mountain areas in Lebanon and Syria.

The original syntypes were collected in Lebanon at 1800 m. and in the Bolkar mountains of western Turkey at 2200 m. as described by Werner in 1898. In 1922, Werner restricted the designation to Lebanon in his designation of his specimens as a lectotype, and in 1938 separated out the southern varieties as a separate species (Vipera palaestinae). In 1967 Mertens raised the name bornmuellerwi to valid rank for the Lebanese populations, thus leaving the name xanthina for all Turkish populations, which arrangement was accepted by Baran in 1976, and agreed with by Nilson and Andrén in their 1985 paper.

Famous quotes containing the word range:

    A girl must allow others to share the responsibility for care, thus enabling others to care for her. She must learn how to care in ways appropriate to her age, her desires, and her needs; she then acts with authenticity. She must be allowed the freedom not to care; she then has access to a wide range of feelings and is able to care more fully.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)
