Description

Reviews

Florida contains more exotic amphibians and reptiles than any other U.S. state. Illustrated species accounts detail the history and nature of each, the mode of dispersal, natural history, and present-day habitat and geographic distribution in the state. The impact of these animals is measured by their presence in natural systems of Florida and predator-prey interactions with native and other exotic species. The authors update the list of the documented exotic species in Florida and provide a progress report on new and published natural history information for each established species. An afterword examines the role people have played in the success of these species.

"On its own, it is an effective introduction to the issues surrounding exotic invasions and an interesting overview of the herp species that have invaded Florida. As a reference, it is an important collection of data and an expedient source of references for exploring the issues in detail. Whether you are an amateur herper or a professional scientist, this book will be an interesting and valuable addition to a collection of books on regional herpetofauna." -- Steven M. Sullivan, Bulletin of the Chicago Herpetological Society, Volume 39, Number 6, June 2004

"This book is up to Krieger's usual standard being well laid out and very user friendly in terns of finding the required information. A suitable colour photograph accompanies all species accounts and the book also features a useful glossary of terminology and an extensive reference list…in terms of general interest it is a very worthwhile purchase." -- Dave Arnold, The Herptile, 29:2, June 2004

"… it was wonderful to see the emphasis the writers placed on our roles of stewardship and those protections that are currently in place." -- Jill Merrill, Cold Blooded News, Volume 32, Number 5, May 2005

"This well-illustrated and comprehensive book will be appreciated by naturalists and land managers. A cross reference between scientific and common names is provided, as well as an extensive list of references."--Southeastern Naturalist, Vol. 6, No. 2
