About this book

A compilation of clear, concise and informative definitions of the characteristic vocabulary commonly encountered and used by herpetologists when discussing, reading, or writing about reptiles and amphibians.

British Herpetological Society Bulletin, 2005. ...It is a book that is difficult to put down; one can become totally absorbed in its pages, browsing over the terms you know (or thought you knew!) and more importantly discovering those which are unfamiliar". "...In summary, this is a fine book well deserving of a place on the keen herpatologist's bookshelf." "" "It is a true herpetological Ghota, covering a span of three centuries, from Linnaeus to Albert and Anna Wright. The very best and brightest in the field is introduced with a touch so genteel it borders on reverence".
