This field guide assists with the identification of the 80 reptile species currently known to occur in the Murray catchment area of New South Wales. Illustrated with colour photographs, the book describes the key distinguishing features of each reptile and includes details on habitats and conservation status.
The book also contains a detailed chapter on how to conserve reptiles and manage key habitats, providing landholders and natural resource agencies with the knowledge to help conserve reptiles in agricultural farming landscapes. The up-to-date distribution maps are based on 10 years of extensive surveys and research. The final chapter of this title includes a section on similar looking species to further enable readers to accurately and quickly identify difficult species.
