This review is from: Amphibians and reptiles (Naturalists' Handbook) (Paperback)
A concise, well written text, by the British King of Herpetology, Trevor Beebee. I bought this as a pre order and was so pleased when it arrived early.

It is easy to read and the chapters are well set out providing information on both native and non native species.In addition to the ecological requirements and life cycles of each species, survey techniques, monitoring and suggested analyses are explained. The book also provides details and examples of activities that can be conducted by individuals and groups alike.

Information is accompanied by a range of high quality photos and line drawings.

My only criticism, which is only a partial one, is that although the book acknowledges the different Legislation that is practised in relation to the protection of amphibians and reptiles in England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, it doesn't state that bottle trapping is not legal in Northern Ireland - if it does and I missed the statement - I am sorry!

A great book and a definite addition to all natural history libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fills a gap in the current literature, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amphibians and reptiles (Naturalists' Handbook) (Paperback)
This book does not give an individual account of each species but is focused more towards general concepts explained for each species / group. It would be very useful for the student or 'professional' amateur wishing to further the study of these species in the UK.
