Biogeography of the Reptiles of South Asia contains references to over 150 species of herpetofauna of the South Asia region. At the crossroads of two biogeographic realms, South Asia supports a highly diverse and distinct reptile fauna, with 634 species represented. This work presents an analysis of this fauna, highlighting its richness and endemicity, the patterns and correlates of species diversity, affinities within the region and with extralimital fauna, and barriers to distribution and speciation.
