Product Description

Book Description

The Honduran Mosquitia is part of the largest remaining tract of tropical lowland forest in Central America. This is the first treatment of the reptiles and amphibians of any portion of the Mosquitia. The authors discuss the composition, distribution, natural history, biogeography, conservation status, and the future well being of the herpetofauna of the Mosquitia of Honduras. A primary goal of this work is to increase the awareness of the ecological value that amphibians and reptiles have in the maintenance of healthy, functioning, natural ecosystems. A color photograph illustrates each of the 156 species.

Format:Hardcover
The collaborative work of herpetofauna experts James R. McCranie, Josiah H. Townsend, and Larry David Wilson, The Amphibians And Reptiles Of The Honduran Mosquitia is the latest in a series of regional amphibians and reptiles reference books from the Krieger Publishing Company. Beginning with a chapter on "Materials and Methods", The Amphibians And Reptiles Of The Honduran Mosquitia goes on to describe the Honduran Mosquitia region in terms of physiography, climate, vegetation zones and environments, peoples, and the history of herpetofaunal survey work. The Amphibians And Reptiles Of The Honduran Mosquitia next presents amphibian and reptile classifications, their ecological and biogeographical distribution and relationships, and conservation status. Descriptively identifying protected areas of the Mosquitia, The Amphibians And Reptiles Of The Honduran Mosquitia finally addresses future projections and concerns and "Species of Probable Occurrence in the Honduran Mosquitia". Enhanced with color photography throughout, The Amphibians And Reptiles Of The Honduran Mosquitia offers students and readers a glossary, a gazetteer, a listing of cited literature, and an index to scientific names.
