"An authoritative, well-documented, easy to read,
and informative work. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students and faculty." -- E. D. Keiser, University of Mississippi, Choice, September 1997.
"The author is well qualified to present his subject in a scholarly way but also provides lucid explanations for a layperson...this title certainly should be on the shelves of libraries with natural history collections or an interest in the fauna of islands or of South and Central America." --
Constance Rinaldo, American Reference Books Annual, 1998.
"Its overall caliber makes it a must for anyone interested in neotropical herpetology, and it sets a good standard for other geographical guides." -- Hinrich Kaiser, Department of Biology, La Sierra University, Herpetological Natural History, Vol. 5(1), 1997.
