Abstract

About the book:
There has been a huge surge of interest in reptiles and amphibians over the past few years in both scientific research and common interest. This superbly designed and illustrated encyclopedia has brought together a wealth of new and fascinating information on amphibians and reptiles in one volume. Written by a stream of distinguished zoologists and brought together by internationally renowned experts, Tim Halliday and Kraig Adler, the encyclopedia gives an excellent andauthoritative overview of reptiles and amphibians. Vividly illustrated with excellent colour photographs on all reptiles and amphibians, it manages to combine scientific research with easy to read essays thus appealing simultaneously to a general audience interested in natural history and to specialistsrequiring an accurate up to date reference work. The New Encyclopedia of Reptiles and Amphibians builds on the success of its first edition, published in 1986, to produce an up-to-date, authoritative and hugely readable species by species guide to all the reptiles and amphibians of the world.
