Bibliothèque de littérature

Bienvenue dans la bibliothèque de littérature du groupe de travail sur les pangolins de la CSE de l’UICN. Bien que les pangolins restent des espèces peu étudiées, la littérature scientifique sur les espèces, leur écologie, leur commerce et leur conservation à augmenté au fil des années. Nous présentons ci-dessous une collection complète de littérature, organisée dans les catégories suivantes : La CITES et la mise en vigueur, les mesures de conservation, la demande, l’écologie,médecine légale, l’élevage, la phylogénie, le commerce et l’utilisation, et la santé vétérinaire.

Utilisez le menu déroulant ci-dessous pour explorer notre bibliothèque. Pour les publications qui sont disponibles gratuitement ou en libre accès, nous avons fourni un lien pour consulter la publication.
