The project `Important Herpetofaunal Areas in Europe` (IHA) aims at mapping the areas and sites where threatened reptiles and amphibians (herpetofauna) are living and where rich assemblages of species occur. Phase 1 deals with the most threatened herpetofauna according to a list of target species: 43 reptiles and 16 amphibians. Phase 2 (still underway) covers all European countries of which the nationally important areas will be mapped. A network of co-workers all over Europe has been established. They provide their information by means of a questionnaire, which is a computer programme that can be downloaded from the internet (www.iha.alterra.nl). This manual is meant to provide help when going through the various menus of this questionnaire.
