Handbook of Lizards: Lizards of the United States and of Canada is the most thorough treatment of lizards in the United States and Canada, this book has rightly become a landmark among herpetologists and lizard specialists. Hobart Smith spent years compiling and organising information on 136 species of lizards for his classic study. With scores of illustrations, photographs, labelled drawings, range maps, and illustrated keys, with species dealt with under range, type, locality, size, colour, scalation, recognition characters, habitats and habits, this volume serves as a convenient reference guide to the study of North American lizards. Darrel Frost, a prominent lizard specialist, provides a foreword that underscores the work's relevance for herpetology today.
