“The World of Amphibians and Reptiles is one of the first four volumes in Abbeville Press’s outstanding new collection of pocket encyclopedias of natural science. Written in scholarly yet easy-to-understand language, the series is packed with information that will fascinate student and nature buff alike. Beautiful full-colour illustrations on every page supplement the lively text.
The World of Amphibians and Reptiles offers a comprehensive overview of the structure, ecology, behaviour, habitat and classification of these fascinating creatures. The volume combines the usefulness of a reference book, perfect for anyone attuned to the splendour of our natural world. It both explains and illustrated how a tadpole becomes a frog, how coldblooded animals keep warm and more.”
