Species conservation is not possible without knowledge on biology and distribution. In order to achieve this purpose, chorological databases are essential (Sillero, Celaya and Martín-Alfageme, 2005 ; Loureiro and Sillero, 2010 ). The presentation of chorological information

The priority was to sample the territory of Salamanca as inclusively as possible, and such roads were sampled only once. Records were collected

to five revisions. As mentioned before, the Impact Factor (IF), as well as the 5 Years IF regularly increased for 10 years and now Amphibia-Reptilia is one of top herpetological journals. We must indicate that the publication of the Atlas in 2014 has a strong impact for the last two IFs, with 18
