"This is a stunning and wonderful contribution to the natural history of Arkansas, crammed with information and spectacular photography. The authors bring together their extensive knowledge of different groups and meld them in a way that ensures that The Amphibians and Reptiles of Arkansas will be a lasting and frequently used compendium." - Joseph T. Collins, director of Center for North American Herpetology, Wildlife Author Laureate of Kansas, co-author of the Peterson Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of Eastern and Central North America, 3rd edition, and author of Amphibians and Reptiles in Kansas
"This book is obviously a labor of love. . . . The authors have done an excellent job. The text is well written, and the photographs and illustrations are superb. The Amphibians and Reptiles of Arkansas is an essential addition to the library of any herpetologist, and will be accepted eagerly by the scientific community." - James Dixon, professor emeritus at Texas A & M University and author of Texas Snakes and Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas
"This is a major work. The authors have done a superb job of compiling the most definitive work on the herpetofauna of Arkansas to date. The photography and illustrations are well done and the text is replete with pertinent information. The extensive and well-written keys to larval amphibians are absent from most state herpetological works, and for this reason alone herpetologists and biologists will use this work as an important reference. The authors are to be commended for producing this exhaustive and much-needed work by synthesizing their collective expertise and experience into a single volume." - Kelly Irwin, herpetologist, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
