Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand

17 Mar 2015 08:04 - 08 Sep 2015 18:01 #2761 by Paul T
I just got a copy of the following book in my mailbox this morning and am well impressed. It follows a similar written format (but larger and more improved) to the Large Mammals of Thailand Field Guide with illustrations, details and the very useful Thai range maps.

A Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand
Authors: Tanya Chan-Ard, Jarujin Nabhitabhata, John W. K. Parr

I just have to see an actual snake now to put it to good use :+)

From the intro.............

"Thailand is home to over 350 species of reptiles, consisting of many kinds of turtles and tortoises, lizards, snakes and crocodiles. With its extensive network of protected areas, Thailand is one of the richest and most ecologically diverse countries in the world. However, many of these species are being threatened more than ever before, including habitat loss caused by agricultural expansion and intensification, and from wildlife trade. For herpetologists and naturalists, understanding the reptiles of Thailand is now more important than ever before. With A Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand, Tanya Chan-ard, John Parr, and Jarujin Nabhitabhata present the definitive resource for identifying and understanding all known species of reptile in the region. It is the only updated and complete guide to the country's reptilian life in existence. The book contains an account of every species, complete with nomenclature, colour illustrations, and range maps of known locations. The accounts include discussion of behaviour, morphological measurements, and habitat, as well as the most current information on each species' conservation status. The authors explain the current system of classifying the threat level of endangerment, making the presented information and terminology understandable and useful. The introduction to the book discusses the history of herpetology in Thailand, as well as its climate, physiography, and zoogeography. A section on how to use the guide most effectively has also been included to make the book accessible to a wide range of both scientists and nature enthusiasts. A Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand is the definitive and most comprehensive resource for herpetologists, naturalists, and conservationists working in Thailand."
