Description

A Field Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Nebraska (FG-21).  158 pp, perfect bound paperback, 2010 Description: This full color, photo rich publication describes the sixty-two species of amphibians with 14 species and reptiles with 48 species call Nebraska home. Of the 14 amphibian species there are 11 species of frogs and toads and three species of salamanders. Nebraska"s reptiles include nine species of turtles, ten species of lizards, and 29 species of snakes. Fourteen species of amphibians and reptiles have a statewide distribution while two others are distributed nearly statewide. All other species reach their continental distributional boundaries within the state. Herpetology as a science in Nebraska officially began in 1891 with the publication of "The Ophidia of Nebraska" by W. Edgar Taylor of the Nebraska Teacher"s College (now Peru State College in Peru, Nebraska). This manuscript provided an annotated list of the snake species known from Nebraska at that time. Nebraska does not presently list any amphibian or reptile species as endangered. One species, the Massasauga (Sistrurus catenatus), is afforded the status of threatened within Nebraska. Other species are listed as Species in Need of Conservation (SINC). ISBN-10: 1561610135 ISBN-13: 978-1561610136
