This field guide at last provides an authoritative and handy source for identifying amphibians and reptiles of Costa Rica's renowned Atlantic lowland tropical forests. Colorful frogs, lizards that can run across water, snapping turtles, spotted geckos, boa constrictors, crocodiles, and many other fascinating yet secretive species of amphibians and reptiles flourish in the region's myriad microhabitats.

For travelers, ecotourists, and biologists, this comprehensive guide, written by two distinguished experts on the area's amphibians and reptiles, will be an essential resource while visiting La Selva and the surrounding tropical forests of Costa Rica. In addition to providing reliable field identification, it will help visitors to this area better understand the overall role of Central American amphibians and reptiles in the natural world as well as conservation efforts now being undertaken to ensure the survival of these intriguing creatures.* 138 frogs, lizards, snakes, and crocodiles are included in keys based primarily on color patterns for easy identification * Each species is illustrated with a color photograph; the guide also features range maps and black-and-white drawings * Includes an overview of the natural history of each amphibian and reptile and gives helpful tips on where to observe them

Great book, great price 3 février 2005
Par KeyGeek - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I took this book on a recent research trip to a preserve near La Selva, and used it daily. Not just a field guide with pretty pictures, this book contains a key to the species. Since it is specific to this area of the country, it cut down on the amount of material that had to be sorted through to ID organisms. I could quickly key out species without having to worry about whether or not this was the right area for that particular species. The photos were clear and beautiful, with different color phases and sexual dimorphisms illustrated. If you are traveling to this specific area of Costa Rica, this book is really useful. It's small, lightweight, easy to use, and CHEAP!

Good if you stay in La Selva, Costa Rica 19 octobre 2007
Par Jason Weigner - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Nice compact book. The only trouble is that it is so specific to one little area that it misses species that may be just down the road or just less common in this area. Nice for a quick reference for common species but not as extensive as I would like. The keys are useful. It is not always easy finding a field guide with good keys!

Excellent book, great destination 10 octobre 2012
Par Carl Bernzweig - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
One of the most user-friendly field guides I've ever carried. Portable (for what it's worth*), clearly written and well laid-out, with dichotomous keys to help zero in on the ID of most any herp you get a good enough look at while visiting Costa Rica's La Selva Research Station--itself a very well laid-out, user-friendly destination for DIY eco-tourists.

NB: A number of genus names (especially frogs) have changed since the book's publication, but you can still use it for ID, then cross-reference online for the updated names. Same probably true of just about any amphibian field guide that wasn't published more or less yesterday.

*Odds are pretty good you'll be walking in rain when you want to use this book, and it's no kind of waterproof. We brought laminated copies of the keys with us.

Dont use for Osa Peninsula. 24 septembre 2013
Par Ryan T. Tierney - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Not a horrible book. Laid out well, good descriptions and decent pictures. May be Great for La Selva, but wasnt much use for the Osa Peninsula area. One thing I noticed is that the range maps where in accurate. I talked to a couple guides and they said it was outdated, a little inaccurate, has some old or less common naming conventions, and is missing a bunch of species. One guide called it "junk". Neither kept it in their library. So unless you are specifically going to La Selva, I wouldn't recommend it, and even then there are probably better choices. I gave it 3 stars only because I was using it outside its target area.....but Costa Rica isnt all that big and the habitats dont vary that much. Sure youll have niche species that will get missed, but I still think they could have done a lot better. I found the fold out guides from Rainforest publications more helpful then this book and they are just laminated cards.
