Hands-On Herpetology: Exploring Ecology and Conservation - PBX by Rebecca L. Schneider, Marianne E. Krasny, et al. | Feb 1, out of 5 stars Reference & Research Book News, December "Many of the new insights into the understanding of reptile and amphibian biology have been updated in this edition resulting in its increased size and making it a great value This book will be an excellent addition to the library of anyone interested in herpetology." Examples taken from amphibians and reptiles throughout the world make this book a useful herpetology textbook in several countries. Naturalists, amateur herpetologists, herpetoculturists, zoo professionals, and many others will find this book readable and full of relevant natural history and distributional information. Herpetology is a rapidly evolving field, which has contributed to new discoveries in many conceptual areas of biology. The authors build on this progress by updating all chapters with new literature, graphics, and discussions—many of which have changed our thinking.
The book concludes with a discussion of the threats facing amphibians and reptiles and approaches to conserving herpetological diversity. Herpetology, Fourth Edition, serves as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate-level courses and as a comprehensive source of information about amphibians and reptiles for professional biologists.
