Symbolic and Stunning Lizards
by Jackson D. Shedd in the United States (2013-08-19)
This work was beautifully executed! There is a definite need for more efforts like The Symbol combining art and science to convey the amazing color polymorphism, behavioral biology and evolution of the lizard world!
"[...] our expectations have been vastly exceeded. In a word, the book is fabulous [...] At first pass, what grabs attention are the photographs, which are amazing. Of course, with a resplendent species like Podarcis pityusensis to work with, the Day’s Edge team had good material with which to work, but they’ve made the most of it. The photos are lustrous, exquisite, sharp and beautifully framed. [...] Yet, the book also holds value to the seasoned herpetologist. The discussion of the biology of this species is thorough and first-rate, and the photos capture in unusually vivid detail many important aspects of their ecology and behavior."
