The Amphibians and Reptiles of Alberta
A Field Guide and Primer of Boreal Herpetology
by Russell and Bauer
Amphibians & reptiles (herpetofauna) are a significant but much neglected component of the natural economy of the province of Alberta. This second edition, which continues both as a field guide & a comprehensive natural history, builds on the strengths of the first, with a richly illustrated text, & colour photographs of the species taken by renowned wildlife photographer, Dr Wayne Lynch. The award-winning first edition received recognition in the Emerald Awards for Environmental Excellence. This second edition has been thoroughly revised & updated. Nomenclature has been changed to reflect current thinking in the field. New photographs have been added, & maps & illustrations have been updated.
