The amphibians and reptiles of the Honduran Mosquitia
The Honduran Mosquitia is part of the largest remaining tract of tropical lowland forest in Central America. This is the first treatment of the reptiles and amphibians of any portion of the Mosquitia. The authors discuss the composition, distribution, natural history, biogeography, conservation status, and the future well being of the herpetofauna of the Mosquitia of Honduras. A primary goal of this work is to increase the awareness of the ecological value that amphibians and reptiles have in the maintenance of healthy, functioning, natural ecosystems. A color photograph illustrates each of the 156 species.
