This text is intended primarily as a field guide to the 100 or so reptiles and amphibians that occur on the islands of the Eastern Caribbean, from Anguilla and Sombrero in the north to Grenada in the south. It is hope that the book will provide an introduction to the biology of these animals for the non-specialist, and that the results of the author's ten years of research into evolutionary ecology in the Eastern Caribbean should be of interest to both amatuer and professional herpetologists alike. The herpetofauna of Dominica, as an example of a virtually intact community, are described in detail. A series of island profiles follows in which the specific features and species of each island portrayed and illustrated by colour photographs. A chapter on conservation emphasises the specific threat to species and habitats. A glossary explains any technical terms and a checklist of species is included for easy reference.
