Description

Reviews

The Honduran Mosquitia is part of the largest remaining tract of tropical lowland forest in Central America. This is the first treatment of the reptiles and amphibians of any portion of the Mosquitia. The authors discuss the composition, distribution, natural history, biogeography, conservation status, and the future well being of the herpetofauna of the Mosquitia of Honduras. A primary goal of this work is to increase the awareness of the ecological value that amphibians and reptiles have in the maintenance of healthy, functioning, natural ecosystems. A color photograph illustrates each of the 156 species.

"… will make an excellent addition to any herpetological library." -- Alan H. Wilkie, The Herptile, 31:3, September 2006

"The authors have written a scientifically sound and informative regional book on the amphibians and reptiles of the Honduran Mosquitia. They not only illustrate and describe the 156 species of amphibians and reptiles, but also provide user-friendly keys and detailed descriptions...The book is a very useful identification guide and has a wealth of information on the region, people, and herpetofauna." -- Steven Damm, Notes from Noah, October 2006

"… much more than a standard account of amphibians and reptile diversity in this area - rather a framework for the conservation and welfare of its herpetofauna. Accordingly, it deserves the highest recommendation." -- Peter Stafford, Herpetological Bulletin (2006) Number 98
