Written and produced by Friends and Alumni of OTS, Herpetology, Fourth Edition, presents a functional understanding of amphibians and reptiles - what they do and how they do it, and how those attributes are related to their ecology and evolutionary history. Amphibians and reptiles play a critical role in our ecosystem, and this textbook for undergraduate and graduate level courses offer a comprehensive source of information.

Initial chapters present the fossil history of amphibians and reptiles and the phylogenetic relationships of extant groups, with descriptions of the biological characteristics of each family and photographs of representative species.  The phylogenetic and biogeography chapters incorporate the most recent molecular phylogenetic information, including extensive discussion of the expanding field of phytogeography.  

Herpetology, Fourth Edition, received the 2017 Choice award for Outstanding Academic Titles, for its source of information for professional biologists, hobbyists, and interested laypersons.
