About this book

Language: English

Reptiles of the Solomon Islands provides comprehensive accounts of 86 reptiles, which represent all the currently known species occurring in this island archipelago. Most importantly, the natural histories of the living animals are given in detail, and almost all species – including many colour variants – are depicted in large, full-colour photographs.

While Reptiles of the Solomon Islands is essentially a field guide, it is compiled in such a way as to be of use not only for professional biologists working in the field or museum, but also for the interest of amateur naturalists and travellers in Solomon Islands. In fact anyone with an appreciation for the natural history of this group of beautiful South Pacific islands will find Reptiles of the Solomon Islands a worthwhile addition to their library.

"During the 26 years Mike McCoy lived in the Solomons, he visited nearly all the islands in the archipelago and is widely regarded as one of the foremost authorities on the reptile fauna of the Solomons. He is also an extraordinarily gifted photographer with a keen eye for detail, an indefatigable field worker and an old and close friend. Since Reptiles of the Solomon Islands of the first field guide in 1980, he has continued his studies, making many additional discoveries, and this fine book is the culmination of those efforts." Allen Allison Ph.D., Vice President Science, Bishop Museum, Honolulu
