The Amphibians and Reptiles of Costa Rica : A Herpetofauna Between Two Continents, Between Two Seas

By (author) Savage, Jay M.; Photographs by Fogden, Michael; Photographs by Fogden, Patricia

World-renowned for its biological diversity and model conservation system, Costa Rica is home to a wide variety of amphibians and reptiles, from the golden toad to the scorpion lizard to the black-headed bushmaster. Jay M. Savage has studied these fascinating creatures for more than forty years, and in "The Amphibians and Reptiles of Costa Rica" he provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of their biology and evolution ever produced. Costa Rica has played, and continues to play, a pivotal role in the study of tropical biology as well as the development of ecotourism and ecoprospecting, in part because more than half of the amphibians and reptiles in Costa Rica are also found elsewhere in Central America. "The Amphibians and Reptiles of Costa Rica" will be an essential book for a wide audience of nature lovers, naturalists, ecotourists, field biologists, conservationists, government planners, and those interested in Central America more generally.
