Pleistocene Amphibians and Reptiles in Britain and Europe
by Alan Holman
Edition: 1st., 1998
This book is meant to be a college-level introduction to the study of Pleistocene amphibians and reptiles of Britain and Europe and a companion volume to Pleistocene Amphibians and Reptiles in North America (Holman, 1995c). It does not pretend to be a definitive taxonomic revision of Pleistocene herpetological taxa or claim to cite every reference for each Pleistocene herpetological species found in the vast area covered by the book. It should, however, be a standard reference for anyone interested in Pleistocene flora or fauna as well as Pleistocene events in general. It should be especially useful for modern herpetologists, ecologists, and evolutionary biologists. I have tried to keep the approach to the subject simple and direct and have purposely tried not to get involved in esoteric and convoluted arguments about Pleistocene events and patterns.
