A Photographic Guide to the Snakes of Java is a brand new title detailing the 89 species of snake from the Indonesian island of Java. Heavily illustrated with quality colour photographs and diagrams, it details all characteristics required to accurately identify the snakes of this region.
"The sheer diversity that captures our imagination is also often one of the factors complicating identification and further study. In particular, a lack of accessible literature makes it difficult for local naturalists to engage with the biodiversity on their doorstep. This has been a long-standing problem for the identification of herpetofauna in many parts of Southeast Asia. However, for Java, the present work finally fills the longstanding gap of an accurate, useful, comprehensive, yet highly accessible guide that will allow anyone interested to reliably identify snakes found on Indonesia’s most populated island. In particular, the beautifully clear illustrations of diagnostic features should stand as a model for other field guides of this type worldwide." - Dr. Wolfgang WusterNathan Rusli. 143 pages. 2020.
