About this book

Dorset, situated in central, southern England, has almost certainly the richest concentration of reptiles and amphibians of any county in the British Isles. Its geographic location, physiography, climate and wide range of habitats support all twelve of Britain's native reptiles and amphibians. The county has consequently earned an international reputation and is much visited by both amateur and professional zoologists with an interest in these fascinating and, in some cases, rare animal groups.

The Reptiles and Amphibians of Dorset contains a species account of all Dorset's native reptiles and amphibians, detailing the distribution, both in Dorset and nationally, description, longevity, habitat, and habits of each native species. It also includes chapters on: The Dorset Environment; Escapes, introductions and miscellaneous visitors; What the future holds; Reptiles, amphibians and the law; Watching reptiles and amphibians; Dorset nature reserves; Places to visit; and Clubs and societies.
