About this book

This comprehensive photographic field guide covers nearly 200 species and subspecies of European reptiles and amphibians, including all those that occur in Britain. It is lavishly illustrated with images of snakes, lizards, turtles, terrapins, tortoises, frogs, toads, newts and salamanders, with up to four photos of each species including, for example, males, females, colour variants, juveniles and sub-species. Each species account deals with identification, habitat and behaviour, while a summary lists size and key features and a colour map outlines the species' distribution. The introduction outlines reptile and amphibian life-cycles.

The New Holland European Reptile and Amphibian Guide is ideal for taking into the field or on holiday, and is a mine of information on these fascinating creatures. It is essential reading for all conservationists, biologists and wildlife enthusiasts.
