This new book is a revised and updated edition of two popular handbooks, combined into one. Matsuda, Green, and Gregory describe 22 species of amphibians and 17 species of reptiles, along with details on their biology, habits, breeding, and distribution. They also cover introduced, accidental, and unconfirmed species that may be recent arrivals to British Columbia. This useful handbook contains general information on the biology of amphibians and reptiles, fossil history, snake venoms and amphibian toxins, mating and reproductive behavior, physical development and metamorphsis, relationships with humans, and much more. Written in the same easy-to-read style as the 1984 editions, Amphibians and Reptiles includes detailed illustrations of the established species, including many new drawings and color photographs.
