For over three decades, McCranie and Wilson have pursued their interest in the amphibians and reptiles of Honduras with such remarkable energy, enthusiasm, and drive that their names are very nearly synonymous with Honduran herpetology. Joined by Köhler, a talented herpetologist and an authority on Middle American herpetology, these authors have produced a lavishly illustrated, beautifully designed, and data-rich volume. An exemplary regional herpetofaunal treatise, The Amphibians and Reptiles of the Bay Islands & Cayos Cochinos, Honduras is at once a useful identification guide, a concise summary of information on the biology of amphibians and reptiles of the Bay Islands, and an eloquent and impassioned plea for their conservation.-—Julian Lee, University of Miami and author of The Amphibians and Reptiles of the Yucatán Peninsula The authors of this authoritative book about the herpetofauna of the Honduran Bay Islands have produced much more than a simple guide. They not only illustrate and describe the 55 species of amphibians and reptiles, they provide user-friendly keys and detailed descriptions of the islands and their rapidly changing habitats. In addition, they present a thoughtful analysis of the forces, few of them positive, that affect the conservation status of the islands’ unique populations of amphibians and reptiles, many of which are endemic.—Robert Powell, Avila University and Editor of Iguana published by the International Reptile Conservation Federation This lavishly illustrated book by the outstanding authorities on Honduran and Bay Islands amphibians and reptiles is a real winner. It is scientifically sound and informative. It will have great appeal to the dedicated amateur and ecotourists delighting in the variety of readily observed species on the islands. A strong conservation message is supplied to encourage protection of the endemic, small and isolated populations and vulnerable habitats of the Bay Islands. Many, who may never visit the islands, will want a copy as a reference in tropical herpetology.—Jay M. Savage, San Diego State University, and author of The Amphibians & Reptiles of Costa Rica
