Choice Review

Tennant, a writer, and Bartlett, a herpetologist, "bridge the gap between the data in professional biological journals and the general, popular perception of snakes that largely determines our role in preserving or destroying them." Thus, this book is primarily written for the interested general public, but also will be useful to professional and amateur herpetologists as the maps appear to be up-to-date and accurate. All species and subspecies of snakes occurring in eastern and central US and adjacent Canada are covered, conveniently arranged by pattern, habitat, and relationships. Photographs of all taxons are mostly clear and informative. Each account includes information on abundance, size, habitat, prey, reproduction, coloring and scale form, similar snakes, behavior, and whether venomous or nonvenomous. Excellent glossary; adequate bibliography; well-done and useful index. Recommended to all public libraries and anyone interested in this group of animals.
