With Keys, Taxonomic Synopses, Bibliography, and Distribution Maps

James R. Dixon

Photographs by Toby J. Hibbitts

This third edition of James R. Dixon’s Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas: With Keys, Taxonomic Synopses, Bibliography, and Distribution Maps, completely redesigned throughout with color photographs, revised taxonomic keys, and updated species descriptions, covers more than two hundred species of amphibians and reptiles. As in the previous editions, the book includes an extensive listing of the literature on Texas amphibians and reptiles that goes back to the historic writings of Berlandier, in the early nineteenth century, and is updated to reflect the most recent research.?Comprehensive distribution maps, updated references, and an exhaustive bibliography round out this latest edition of what has come to be widely recognized as the standard scientific guide and reference for professional, academic, and amateur naturalists interested in the herpatofauna of Texas.

JAMES R. DIXON is professor emeritus at Texas A&M University and curator emeritus of amphibians and reptiles at the Texas Cooperative Wildlife Collection.
