Amphibians and Reptiles of Montana

Amphibians and Reptiles of Montana Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ribbeting, hissing, and rattling, 31 known species of amphibians and reptiles call Montana home. This book provides complete, basic information about all of them. With descriptions, color photographs, and eight identification keys (including egg an larval stages), this comprehensive field guide allows both the layperson and the professional to confidently identify Montana's frogs, toads, salamanders, turtles, lizards, and snakes. Find out where and when to look for these often reclusive critters; what their calls sound like; which ones really mean it when they bite; how each species hunts, breeds, eludes predators, and overwinters; when they shouldn't be disturbed; how to handle them; and why populations in some places are dwindling and what you can do about it. Includes 213 color photographs, 78 line drawings, 41 maps, 4 tables, 3 appendixes, bibliography, glossary, species checklist, and index.

Book News Annotation:

Although reptiles and amphibians are different classes of vertebrates, they have long been studied together in the field of herpetology. This guide provides an account of the herpetology of Montana, first providing descriptions of herpetofauna biology, habitats in Montana, field observation, and conservation and management, then moving onto species accounts of 36 salamanders, frogs, toads, turtles, lizards, and snakes occurring in the western state. Including numerous color photographs, the species accounts provide information on morphology, taxonomy and distribution, habitat and behavior, and reproduction and development. Also provided are a simplified key to aid identification, a glossary, and appendices detailing reproductive features and other information.
