Product description

Review

"The volume successfully captures the state of the art in leading research programs on amphibians and reptiles. Professional herpetologists will discover that it is an exemplary teaching resource. This new edition will prove indispensable in courses on herpetology and vertebrate diversity..."--The Quarterly Review of Biology - David C. Blackburn, Natural History Museum & Biodiversity Institute, University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS

"[T]his third edition of a leading herpetology textbook speaks for itself. The study of amphibians and reptiles is revealed as a dynamic field serving as a portal into a diverse range of biological disciplines…. [T]here are now more than 500 figures (an increase of more than 35% over the second edition and more than 320% in the first) and color appears throughout the volume not just in the taxonomic chapters. This alone makes this book an invaluable teaching tool…. The volume successfully captures the state of the art in leading research programs on amphibians and reptiles…. Both undergraduates and beginning graduate students as well as amateurs will find this book to be an engaging entry into the field of herpetology. Professional herpetologists will discover that it is an exemplary teaching resource. This new edition will prove indispensable in courses on herpetology and vertebrate diversity..."--Quarterly Review of Biology
