Snakes of the Americas is a comprehensive checklist of all known snakes found in the New World, as well as a lexicon that lists all the common names, in several languages, of these snakes. The checklist gives information on snakes in all of the Americas through the subspecies level, as well as citations and distribution information.  The lexicon, on an easy-to-use, searchable compact disk,  includes common names in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Guarani, and other languages of the Americas, along with references.  Included are North American, South American, Central American, and Caribbean species.  In addition to herpetologists and libraries, other disciplines also will find this work to be a valuable resource. An extensive bibliography is included.

"What a monumental undertaking!…I feel this book and CD will be a valuable reference tool both for private herpetologists and academics alike." -- Alan H. Wilkie, The Herptile, 30:4, Dec. 2005

"…Tipton has combined personal experience with detailed study of the literature and consultation with an impressive group of herpetologists to make available a reference that takes into account the ever-changing nature of the science and the varying opinions of its practitioners. 
The emphasis on common names bears special mention…Highly recommended." -- D.M. McKinstry, emeritus, Pennsylvania State Erie, Behrend College, CHOICE, April 2006

"This book will certainly be a welcome addition to any herpetologist library…We would highly recommend this book and compliment the author for having taken the time to compile such a welcome addition." -- Harlan D. Walley & Theresa L. Wusterbarth, Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society, September 2006

"…I recommend this book as a valuable library reference for students of zoology and anthropology, for amateur collectors and hobbyists, and for professionals interested in snakes of the New World." -- Van Wallach, PODARCIS, 7 (1/2)

"…contains a wealth of information, never compiled in one source book before…The most amazing feature of the book is the lexicon of over 20,000 vernacular names for the snakes of the Americas which Tipton has painstakingly collected himself and via a host of distinguished colleagues mentioned in the Acknowledgements." -- Romulus Whitaker, Hamadryad, Vol. 31, No. 2
