An abundantly illustrated comprehensive guide to the identification of Australia's rich and varied herpetofauna over 960 species of frogs, crocodiles, turtles, tortoises, lizards, and snakes both for researchers and for more generally interested readers wishing to broaden their knowledge of Australia's wildlife. The present edition of Cogger's classic (first published in 1975, most recently in 1986) features not only an updated and expanded text but two new features: all photographs are in color and placed adjacent to the relevant text, and the identification keys are accompanied by explanatory drawings for quick reference and easier identification. The volume also includes distribution maps, a section on collecting methods, a glossary, and an extensive list of references. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
