Primarily intended to generate interest in the ecology and conservation of species occurring, at least in part, in the Atlantic climatic region, but also useful as a field guide, this excellent volume has fine colour paintings by Peter Jack and species accounts based on the latest field work, supplemented by key references.
`The book will be useful to conservationists, amateur herpetologists and others concerned about the decline of our amphibians and reptiles. The text is free of obscure jargon and is written in a way that any lay reader, without specialist knowledge of biology, will be able to understand and enjoy. At the same time, this book is sufficiently detailed to be a valuable reference work for undergraduates and research students.' JL Cloudsley-Thompson, British Herpetological Soceity
