Reptiles of the Solomon Islands
by Mike McCoy
Most importantly, the natural histories of the living animals are given in detail, and almost all species - including many colour variants - are depicted in large, full-colour photographs. While "Reptiles of the Solomon Islands" is essentially a field guide, it is compiled in such a way as to be of use not only for professional biologists working in the field or museum, but also for the interest of amateur naturalists and travellers in Solomon Islands. In fact, anyone with an appreciation for the natural history of this group of beautiful South Pacific islands will find this book a worthwhile addition to their library. Michael McCoy lived in Solomon Islands for 26 years, working as a photographer and writer. He has published several books, worked as a consultant on a number of television documentaries, and his photographs have appeared widely in regional and international publications. He now lives in Australia.
