Reviews

Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Japan covers all the herpetologically significant islands of the Japanese archipelago. Written for both amateur and professional herpetologists, it lists and describes all known species, giving the currently accepted scientific name, Japanese name, meaning of Japanese name, description for identification, range, and ways of distinguishing similar species. All but 9 of the 147 species are illustrated with color photographs suitable for identification, and range maps for all species are included. The annotated bibliography includes the few treatises in English and the major books in Japanese containing understandable illustrations.

"… a book for professionals and amateurs alike..a fascinating reference book." -- Reptile Care, January/February 2005

"We would truly recommend this book to anyone interested in the herpetofauna of the Oriental Regions, and particularly those herpetologists and novice alike in Japan." -- Harlan D. Walley and Theresa L. Wusterbarth, Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society, December 2004

"I was, to be fair amazed, at the diversity of reptiles and amphibians within the covers of this book. More to the point, I was surprised that all of the Japanese island groups were also included. The wealth of amphibian and reptile fauna is amazing!…Allan H. Wilkie, The Herptile, 29:3, September 2004

"The vivid photography that captures the animals in close-up range is wonderful." -- Shea Cogswell, Animal Keepers' Forum, March 2005

"The text is concise, very readable, and informative…Herpetologists or scientists with an interest in this region of the world will find this book useful, as will anyone interested in worldwide amphibian or reptilian groups." -- K.L. Williams, emeritus, Northwestern State University, CHOICE, June 2005, Vol. 42, No. 10

"The best and largest part of this book is the review of the amphibians and reptile species found among the Japanese Islands. First, the photography provided by co-author Maeda is exceptional and by itself is worth the price of this book. The accounts are exceptional and will be very helpful to any AZA institution interested in exhibiting species from this part of the world." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, March 2005

"Goris and Maeda's Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Japan is an important book for all herpetologists and naturalists in general." -- Rom Whitaker, Hamadryad, Vol. No. 1 & 2, March 2006
