An outstanding new field guide,
This review is from: New Holland Guide to the Reptiles and Amphibians of Europe (New Holland Field Guide) (Hardcover)This 250-page full-colour hard-back must be the best value field guide on the market today. It covers all the 202 European reptiles and amphibians, including introductions, but not those of the Atlantic Islands (Canaries, etc.)which can be found in the Collins field guide. Most are illustrated by stunning colour photographs of the highest professional standard - as good as any I have seen of this group. They illustrate differences between males and females, sub-species and varieties for many species. The text is comprehensive and appears to be bang up-to-date, including recent taxonomic changes in, for example, green frogs and midwife toads. Highly recommended to anyone interested in these fascinating and beautiful creatures.
