The Osteology of Reptiles and Amphibians Book Review:

The Osteology of Reptiles and Amphibians: A Modern Comparative Atlas of North American Species is the original guide to all skeletal systems and bone compositions of herpetofauna ranging including turtles, crocodiles, lizards, and snakes. This book looks at the largest concentration of reptilian and amphibian species found across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and beyond. The book begins with fundamental overviews and descriptions for osteological identification, herpetological evolution, and the study of functional and comparative morphology. Its primary feature, unlike any other book of a similar subject matter, is the numerous line drawings separated by bone type, with representatives from all major herpetofauna groups allow individuals looking to identify unknown bones to group. This book offers detailed, scaled, within-group drawings allow researchers to collect data within major groups. The Osteology of Reptiles and Amphibians: A Modern Comparative Atlas of North American Species is the first of its kind, offering herpetologists, vertebrate biologists, paleontologists, and zooarchaelogists a core visual resource for studying and understanding herpetofauna osteology. This book is also useful for students in animal biology, herpetology, and osteology courses. The only book designed for maximum efficiency in herpetofauna bone identification and research Features easy-to-follow guidance on osteological identification, reptile and amphibian evolution, and comparative morphology Illustrated with high-quality line drawings of all skeletal elements of nearly 500 species

Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia Book Review:

Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia is a complete guide to Australia’s rich and varied herpetofauna, including frogs, crocodiles, turtles, tortoises, lizards and snakes. For each of the 1218 species there is a description of its appearance, distribution and habits. These descriptions are also accompanied by distribution maps and, in many cases, one of the book's more than 1000 colour photographs of living animals. The book also includes 130 simple-to-use dichotomous keys, accompanied by hundreds of explanatory drawings, that in most cases allow a specimen in hand to be identified. In addition, it has a comprehensive list of scientific references for those wishing to conduct more in-depth research, an extensive glossary, and basic guides to the collection, preservation and captive care of specimens. This classic work was originally published in 1975. The updated seventh edition contains a new Appendix that discusses recent changes and lists over 80 new or resurrected species and genera that have been added to the Australian frog and reptile fauna since the 2014 edition.

Based on the work of Samuel Wendell Williston and Dr. W.K. Gregory, author and editor of the original title published in 1925, this volume consists of two major parts - a structure-by-structure account of the reptile skeleton, followed by a classification of the various reptile groups based on osteological characters. This update isdesigned to give, in outline form, an account of the nature of the skeletal system of numerous reptile types both living and extinct.

Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas Book Review:

IN THIS REVISED edition of Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas, James R. Dixon adds to and updates the extensive information given in the first edition. A new section on conservation issues highlights some of the problems facing the continued survival of amphibians and reptiles, particularly commercial collecting and habitat destruction. Taxonomic changes have been made to reflect the latest scientific information, and the extensive listing of the literature on Texas amphibians and reptiles has been updated through April, 1999. Going back to the writings of French botanist Jean Louis Berlandier, who encountered Texas herpetofauna during his travels from 1828 to 1834, this list covers more than 150 years of inquiry into the state's species and is also testimony to the distinguished careers of such herpetologists as Hobart M. Smith and, more recently, Chris McAllister. Another prominent feature of this book is the more than 150 distribution maps, which show by county the updated distribution records for all native Texas amphibians and reptiles, based on more than 13,000 county records and more than 110,000 individual localities. Professional and amateur herpetologists as well as environmentalists, wildlife specialists, campers, and hikers will find the dichotomous keys useful for identifying species at hand. This aid to identification is supported by a glossary, drawings and photographs, and complete scientific and common names.

Fossil Frogs and Toads of North America Book Review:

The heart of this book consists of detailed systematic accounts of the known fossil frogs and toads (anurans) of North America and their localities. Extinct fossil frogs and toads are fully discussed and illustrated, and in some cases are re-diagnosed and re-described. For fossil taxa still living, the book gives the modern characteristics, ecological attributes, and modern ranges, and includes illustrations of diagnostic skeletal elements. The volume begins with an overview of the anurans and anuran studies, a general account of the skeleton and bones, and a discussion of the early evolution of the Anura, along with the formal classification of anuran taxonomic groups found in the North American fossil record. The third part of the book presents an epoch-by-epoch discussion of Mesozoic, Tertiary, and Pleistocene anurans, the classification and phylogeny of the anurans, and a comprehensive list of references.
