Description

Reviews

Muhammad Sharif Khan presents the most authoritative illustrated compendium on Pakistan's amphibians and reptiles--a work with no peer in its geographic realm. The book represents the distillation of nearly 40 years of research. Most species are illustrated in full color, and the text includes identification keys, descriptions, natural history, and distribution maps. This is a valuable guide for zoos and institutions, reptile keepers, and natural history travelers in Pakistan. It will be useful not only in Pakistan but in all the surrounding countries, the general region, and beyond.

"A superb scientific reference, unmatched in quality concerning its subject of expertise." -- The Midwest Book Review, April 2006

"A MUST HAVE…With a cover photograph of a Gharial, Gavialis gangeticus, some 22 pages of line drawings from tadpole morphology to detailed drawings of scales, distribution maps for all the animals represented along with photographs of the species although some are of preserved laboratory specimens, what more is there to say!" -- Alan Wilkie, The Herptile, 31:2, June 2006

"For scientists and naturalists, professionals and hobbyists, at home and in the field, this book succeeds in bringing the amphibians and reptiles of Pakistan into light and into focus. The last two chapters, one on snakebites and one on threats to the herpetofauna of Pakistan are both informative and thought provoking." -- Steven Winchell, Reptilia, 2006

"The book contains the most comprehensive and thorough description of native reptiles and amphibians in this particular region that I have ever read." -- Jeff Craven, Notes from NOAH, October 2006

"An excellent bibliography of an astonishing 443 references, for which more than 100 are from the author's pen… The book truly is a welcome and useful contribution to the field of herpetology, and especially those interested in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and China." -- Harlan D. Walley and Theresa L. Wusterbarth, Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society, December 2006
