About this book

The taxonomy and systematics of European reptiles and amphibians have changed a lot in recent years, yet there is no modern, up-to-date field guide available that comprehensively covers all the species. The last illustrated field guide to European reptiles and amphibians was first published 38 years ago, and remains outdated despite occasional reprints and new editions. This major new field guide addresses this deficiency. A total of 219 species are covered in detail, with a focus on identification and geographical variation; species texts also cover distribution, habitat and behaviour. Superb colour illustrations by talented artist Ilian Velikov depict every species and all major variations, and colour photographs are also included for most species.

This groundbreaking new guide is the definitive field reference for these two groups of animals.
It includes:
- Over 370 colour artworks and 200 colour photographs
- 155 accurate and up-to-date distribution maps
- Easy-to-use keys and tables to help with swift species identification

Media reviews

"[...] This book has a lot to live up to given that it is taking on Nick Arnold and Denys Gvenden's well-established Collins guide. Whilst it is hard to write these words, given the affection I have for my well-used volumes of the various editions of the Collins guide, this new, well-written, superbly illustrated book sets the new standard. It is a book for all naturalists, both dedicated and casual, so buy it to take to Europe alongside your bird, butterfly and wildflower guides."
