Amphibians and reptiles are often dubbed as the 'neglected elders, because they were the earliest vertebrates to colonize on land from water and gave rise to birds and mammals, but they are not sufficiently studied and conserved in today's world. Since both amphibians and reptiles are cold-blooded and do not usually travel a long distance, they are often severely affected by habitat loss and climate change. As a consequence, a large proportion of amphibians and reptiles are now facing the threat of extinction. This field guide is the first of its kind in Bangladesh that will permit the general people and researchers easily identify them in the field and to know the basic information on amphibians and reptiles of the country. The authors of this book have extensive field experience on amphibians and reptiles, and have compiled the primary and secondary information, together with many colour photographs to describe 45 amphibian and 92 reptile species from Bangladesh. This book includes up-to-date checklists of recorded amphibians and reptiles of the country and also provides separate lists of expected species.
