Reptiles and Amphibians of Florida book

book cover

Florida is home to a more diverse variety of amphibians and reptiles than any other state due to its wide array of ecosystems—from pine forests to the subtropical Everglades to the tropical Keys—and its large number of established nonnative species. The “Amphibians and Reptiles of Florida” book, scheduled to be published by the University Press of Florida in January 2019, is a comprehensive account of the over 200 species known to exist in the state. Two of the three editors are associated with FWC. This book provides detailed species accounts (often authored by species experts), color range maps, and color photographs for 155 native and 63 nonnative species plus brief accounts for 15 potential or problematic species.
