A Field Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Sonora, Mexico | America's Snake | Peterson Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of Eastern and Central North America | The Book of Frogs | Texas Turtles & Crocodilians | California Amphibian and Reptile Species of Special Concern | Turtles of Alabama | Amphibians and Reptiles of Land Between the Lakes
Each chapter is devoted to one stateâfour in the US (California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas) and six in Mexico (Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo LeÃ³n, and Tamaulipas)âwith text in both English and Spanish.
The chapters contain an introduction to the area, a review of the research, a sketch of the stateâs physiography, and a description of the species present as well as the pertinent conservation issues they face. A color photo gallery includes images of nearly all species.
Almost 40 percent of the featured native species are shared between the US and Mexico, reminding us that animals depend on the integrity of natural landscapes and proving the need for a comprehensive, bilingual reference to help lead a shared effort in the management and conservation of the borderlands.
About: In the first bilingual work on the reptiles and amphibians of the USâMexico border, top herpetologists come together to describe the herpetofauna of the states of this region, which includes more than 600 species of toads, frogs, salamanders, turtles, sea turtles, alligators, lizards, snakes, and sea snakes that are found along the almost 2,000-mile border between the two countries.
