This book succeeds wonderfully both as a field guide and as a comprehensive technical reference of the species and geographic region covered. I have never seen a better regional treatment than this one.

Full of amazing photos that bring hundreds of species vividly to life. This book should be must reading for everyone. After all, when we save amphibians and reptiles, we are actually saving ourselves.

The Amphibians and Reptiles of Mindo is a very nicely produced guide to the diverse herpetofauna of an Andean cloudforest in Ecuador. It is both informative and beautifully illustrated.

This synthetic work of biological knowledge is the first to address the herpetofauna of Mindo. It also shows with great aesthetic quality the details of this region's magnificent biodiversity.
