Life for Reptiles and Amphibians: Volume One features 55 interviews with herpetologists from all over the world. They vary greatly in age, experience, specialisation and interests, giving us a representative cross-section of the extremely differentiated world of herpetology. These questions want to explore the lives of the interviewed, their jobs, and their activities in both the past and the present, the studies they have conducted, how their enthusiasm for herps was born, the difficulties they have encountered on their way and much more. They also have the goal of inducing the interviewee to tell us about their field trips, to provide young people wanting to become herpetologists with some advice, and to discover what is their idea of herpetology as well as what they think of herpetoculture.
