Description
Amphibians and reptiles thrive in New Mexico's many landscapes and varied environments. In all, the state has 123 species, an assemblage of 3 salamanders, 23 frogs and toads, 10 turtles, 41 lizards, and 46 snakes. In this comprehensive guide, each species is presented in a color photograph and its distribution shown on a map. Technical art supplements, identification keys, and line art complement family descriptions. For each species, the following is provided: type, distribution, description, similar species, systematics, habitat, behavior, reproduction, food habits, and references. The detailed descriptions add to our knowledge about the region's herpetofauna, which will aid students, herpetologists, and resource managers. The book is also of great benefit to non-specialists, including casual hikers, since the authors write in accessible language that makes for easy identification of species. This resource should be in the library of anyone interested in southwestern reptiles and amphibians or the natural history of New Mexico.--The Quarterly Review of Biology All students of herpetology should own a copy. This book will be a standard reference for the New Mexico herpetofauna for many years.--Herpetological Review Amphibians and Reptiles of New Mexico will undoubtedly prove an indispensable resource to many herpetologists of the southwest . . . Degenhardt, Painter, and Price have certainly produced what will be the first place to which anyone turns for quality information on the reptiles and amphibians of New Mexico.--Copeia
