Until now, no detailed treatment of the Pennsylvania herpetofauna has ever been published, nor have recent books dealt with the herpetofauna of the entire northeastern United States. Amphibians and Reptiles of Pennsylvania and the Northeast is a comprehensive guide to the amphibians and reptiles of the whole region. Each account contains a general description of the species, major color and pattern variations, ontogenetic changes in patterns and appearance, confusing species, range, and ecology and reproductive biology. This guide is intended for use by both amateurs and professionals and allows convenient retrieval of field data and natural history accounts. Amphibians and Reptiles of Pennsylvania and the Northeast:* Contains complete and easy-to-use keys to all the reptiles and both the adult and larval amphibians of the Northeast.* Features high-quality photographs to illustrate all species of amphibians and reptiles in the region as well as their significant color variations and life history stages.* Includes detailed spot-distribution maps of each species within Pennsylvania and outline maps of each species' distribution throughout the northeastern United States. * Presents extensive new data on the status and distribution of the amphibians and reptiles of Pennsylvania.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A wide audience will find this a useful resource, including professional and amateur herpetologists, students and amateur naturalists. As in a field guide, the amphibians and reptiles are described in detail to aid identification. The text goes far beyond a simple field guide, however, containing substantial treatment of the habitat, habits, reproduction, and distribution of each species."-Book News, October 2001
"This field guide is a superb source of information on the natural history and ecology of these species. . . .Appendix with mensural and reproductive data for Pennsylvania species; glossary; comprehensive bibliography; 133 mostly excellent color photographs. A well-written, easy-to-read, information-packed book."-Choice, February 2002
"Because of its dimensions. . . and mass. . . , the book is unlikely to replace the Peterson or Audubon Field Guide in your backpack. Nonetheless, it will be an important source of information on the natural history and distribution for the amphibians and reptiles of the Northeast."-Robin M. Andrews, Virginia Tech. Journal of the North American Benthological Society, Vol. 20, No. 4, 2001
"It is interesting to note that many of the creatures covered in this book have ranges that exceed the regional Northeast U.S., and readers in other areas of the U.S. will find a substantial amount of the information in this book relevant to their local environments. . . It is important to note that the authors show special concern for care in collecting/releasing animals, sensitivity for the environment, and lawful respect for posted lands. . . A valuable herpetological work."-Dave Hyatt, Sonoran Herpetologist, Vol. 14, No. 8, 2001
"An updated field guide and natural history guide to the herpetofauna of Pennsylvania, also focusing on species found in the northeastern United States."-Northeastern Naturalist, Issue 8/4, 2001
"A recently published book won me over as soon as I opened its artistically designed cover. . . Amphibians and Reptiles of the Northeast is a gem. It desearves space in everyone's nature library."-Evelyn Anderson, Erie Times-News, August 27, 2001
"Well-conceived, well-organized, and well-written, Amphibians and Reptiles of Pennsylvania and the Northeast will make a significant contribution to the herpetology of the region. There is essentially no competition for this first rate book."-Margaret M. Stewart, State University of New York at Albany
