Conservation of Mesoamerican Amphibians and Reptiles provides an up-to-date assessment of the diversity, endemicity, and conservation status of the herpetofauna of Mexico and Central America, one of the planet's largest and most significant biodiversity hotspots. Separate chapters on herpetofaunal conservation are featured for each of the Mesoamerican countries, with Mexico divided into four regions. Other feature chapters include such topics as the Global Amphibian Assessment, recent taxonomic changes, herpetofaunal distribution patterns, and a closing chapter examining the biodiversity significance, conservation status, and the future challenges we face in attempting to save the entire Mesoamerican herpetofauna.
