A Field Guide to the Amphibians & Reptiles of Trinidad & Tobago

Rivas A. Gilson

Abstract


The team of authors of A Field Guide to the Amphibians & Reptiles of Trinidad & Tobago have provided us with a useful tool to know and preserve the life of the amphibians and reptiles from these islands. This guide complements those of Kenny (1969), Murphy (1997), and Boos (2001) and those books edited by Hailey et al. (2011a,b). I will recommend it to everyone interested in knowing the biodiversity of amphibians and reptiles of Trinidad and Tobago, the Antilles and northern South America.
