California Natural History Guides #89: Field Guide to Amphibians and Reptiles of the San Diego Region Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With its varied topography of coast, mountains, and desert, the San Diego region, considered one of the worlds biodiversity hotspots, boasts a rich variety of amphibians and reptiles—from the arboreal salamander to the green sea turtle to the secretive San Diego banded gecko and the red diamond rattlesnake. More than a field guide, this up-to-date, authoritative, conservation-oriented book is the first comprehensive resource on the herpetofauna of the region, which is unfortunately also known for its high number of endangered species. Jeffrey M. Lemm gives information on identification, habitats, biology, and the conservation status of all 88 amphibian and reptile species found in the San Diego region. Many of these animals can also be found in a wide area of Southern California and Northern Baja California, making this valuable guide useful for a wide geographic area and a must-have for outdoor enthusiasts, nature-lovers, and professionals alike.

* Includes a special venom section written by Sean Bush of Animal Planets “Venom ER”

* 160 color photographs illustrate the major habitats and all 88 amphibians and reptiles found in the region

* 70 range maps pinpoint the locations of each subspecies

* A new, easy-to-use taxonomic key by renowned herpetologist Jay Savage as well as line drawings of tadpoles and amphibian egg masses help make species identification simple

Synopsis:
