The dictionary is a compilation of clear, concise and informative definitions of the characteristic vocabulary commonly encountered and used by herpetologists when discussing, reading, or writing about reptiles and amphibians. It is intended for all those who have an interest in these animals, from the amateur hobbyist who may find himself faced with what can be a rather intimidating scientific term or technical expression, to the trained zoologist who may sometimes have doubts over the exact meaning of a particular term. It will, it is hoped, not only be a useful source of reference to all who are either actively or passively involved in some aspects of herpetology whether they be keepers, curators, breeders, researchers, teachers or students, but an interesting read as well.

"...It is a book that is difficult to put down; one can become totally absorbed in its pages, browsing over the terms you know (or thought you knew!) and more importantly discovering those which are unfamiliar". "...In summary, this is a fine book well deserving of a place on the keen herpatologist's bookshelf." --British Herpetological Society Bulletin, 2005

"It is a true herpetological Ghota, covering a span of three centuries, from Linnaeus to Albert and Anna Wright. The very best and brightest in the field is introduced with a touch so genteel it borders on reverence". --www.jmadaro.com/dic_rew/dizreptile.htm
