The taxonomy and systematics of European reptiles and amphibians have changed a lot in recent years, yet there is no modern, up-to-date field guide available that comprehensively covers all the species. The last illustrated field guide to European reptiles and amphibians was first published 38 years ago, and remains outdated despite occasional reprints and new editions. This major new field guide addresses this deficiency. Every species will be covered in detail with a focus on identification and geographical variation; species texts also cover distribution, habitat and behavior. A detailed up-to-date map is also included for each species. Superb color illustrations by talented artist Ilian Velikov depict every species and all major variations, and color photographs are also included for most species.

This groundbreaking new guide will become the definitive field reference for these two groups of animals.
