The Reptiles and Amphibians of Alabama is the only comprehensive book about the state's 182 species and subspecies of snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, and salamanders. Generously illustrated, it contains photographs and range maps for each species, showing the specific locality from which each specimen on record was collected. The text includes keys, detailed descriptions, accounts of habitats and life histories, remarks about variations and ecological disturbances, as well as general information on such topics as collecting and care in captivity. The volume is an essential guide for herpetologists of all ages.

 

Robert H. Mount is retired from the Department of Zoology-Entomology at Auburn University.

 


"An important advancement in the knowledge of herpetology of the southeastern United States. Mount has produced both a superb state faunal survey replete with original data, and an in-depth scholarly treatment of many taxonomic problems. . . . A copy should be in the possession of everyone interested in amphibians and reptiles."
