Following the historical precedent of Peters (1964), the new updated Dictionary of Herpetology provides a comprehensive, single-volume dictionary, with selected cross-referenced entries to clarify the many technical terms and concepts that pertain to herpetology. The Dictionary provides a complete collection of words that are central to understanding the biology of amphibians and reptiles, offering concise and easy-to-use readable definitions in an A-to-Z format that contains 11,358 entries. This reference is essential for students, professionals, breeders, or anyone who is interested in herpetology and its many interdisciplinary connections. The new Dictionary emphasizes terminology related to anatomy, physiology, systematics, evolution, and other disciplines, including newly emerged fields that are relevant to the study of amphibians and reptiles.

"Highly recommended by CNAH; an absolutely essential volume that should be on or close by the desk of every herpetologist." Center for North American Herpetology, July 2008

"A core addition to academic library reference collections…an essential reference for students and anyone involved with the study of amphibians and reptiles, as well as community library shelves for non-specialist general readers seeking clarification of associated terminologies and concepts."--The Midwest Book Review, August 2008

"Lillywhite (Univ. of Florida) has produced a superbly detailed and exceptionally useful reference source for anyone concerned with amphibians and reptiles…Highly recommended." -- E.D. Keiser, emeritus University of Mississippi, CHOICE, December 2008


"This invaluable reference is essential for academic herpetologists, or anyone interested in herpetology and its many ancillary aspects."--Animal Keepers' Forum, Vol. 35, No. 10

"I tried over 50 words and found them in this book. The 41 black and white illustrations are extremely helpful in understanding certain concepts…this book has proven itself as a useful tool when I find myself in the middle of an article with unfamiliar terms…I think Dr. Lillywhite has succeeded in his hope that this book will be useful to people with more than just a passing interest in amphibians and reptiles." -- Kevin Wright, DVM, Exotic DVM, Volume 11, Issue 3

"This volume will appeal to a very wide readership and merits inclusion in the libraries of teaching and research institutions throughout the world. Harvey Lillywhite deserves congratulations for undertaking an extremely difficult task." -- Michael J. Tyler, Applied Herpetology, (2009) 99-100
