About this book

This third edition of James R. Dixon's Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas, completely redesigned throughout with color photographs, revised taxonomic keys, and updated species descriptions, covers more than two hundred species of amphibians and reptiles. As in the previous editions, Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas includes an extensive listing of the literature on Texas amphibians and reptiles that goes back to the historic writings of Berlandier, in the early nineteenth century, and is updated to reflect the most recent research. Comprehensive distribution maps, updated references, and an exhaustive bibliography round out this latest edition of what has come to be widely recognized as the standard scientific guide and reference for professional, academic, and amateur naturalists interested in the herpetofauna of Texas.

" [...] the widely accepted scientific guide and reference for professional, academic, and amateur naturalists interested in these creatures [...] completely redesigned with updated species descriptions covering all species of Texas amphibians and reptiles [...] a beautiful and useful book [...] it has a place in homes where nature is important."
– Jerry Turner, Mexia News

"A must have for those with an interest in the amphibians and reptiles of Texas!"
– Ian Paulsen, Birdbooker Report 258

"[...] a beautiful and useful book [...] it has a place in homes where nature is important. Schools should order copies."
– Jerry Turner, The Mexia News
