Reviews

Tarantulas of Belize is a comprehensive overview of all species occurring in this beautiful Central American country.  It is both a reference book and a field guide which brings together everything currently known about the tarantulas of the region.  Chapters cover ecology, habitats, identification (including a key), how to find them, conservation and ethical issues, along with a detailed profile, distribution map, 45 black and white photographs, and 15 color photographs for every species.  An up-to-date reference that presents the tarantulas in the wild, this book is a must for professionals, hobbyists, and naturalists.

"This publication can best be described as being both a reference book and a field guide…The chapters cover ecology, habitats, how to find them, conservation and of course a detailed profile of each of the species--including colour photographs.  Gripping stuff and exceedingly well done…a must for the serious enthusiast." -- British Tarantula Society

"… the author does an excellent job in explaining how Belize has such a diverse Tarantula fauna…the color insert section of tarantula species were reproduced exceptionally well…very worthwhile and recommended." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, June 2003

"I found this book very enjoyable and informative being quite different to many other books I have read on Tarantulas.  This is mainly due to Author telling us about the practicalities of studying these spiders in the field which make for an interesting and less dry read than many other titles on the subject…If you are interested in Tarantulas then this book is worth reading." -- Nick Quinn, The Herptile, 28:2, June 2003

"This book is particularly noteworthy because it is rare to find publications for tarantula fauna dedicated to a single region.  This is probably the first of many field guidebooks for specific invertebrate taxa to come and is a fine example from which future authors and researchers can build…Whether planning a trip to Belize, constructing a research project, or if a person just possesses a keen interest in tarantulas, this book is certainly an excellent resource to have in hand." -- Diane Barber, Curator of Ectotherms, Fort Worth Zoo, Animal Keepers' Forum, Vol. 30, No. 8, August 2003

"Tarantulas of Belize was a pleasant surprise.  At first glance it appears to address only a group of spiders of one Central American country; a topic of probable appeal to a select few readers. However, others with a more general interest in natural history or who wish to know more about the often sensationalized and frequently misunderstood tarantula will not be disappointed." -- D.M. McKinstry, Pennsylvania State University, CHOICE, October 2003
