Chimaira Reptile Life in the Land of Israel (Werner)

Yehudah Werner's book is far more than theusual publishedfield guide. The introductory part provides very detailed descriptions of the biology of the reptiles, otherwise only found in books such as Laurie Vitt's "Herpetology". Drawings and photographs illustrate morphological details. In addition, several hundred colour photographs show the beauty and diversity of the Israeli reptile fauna. Yehuda's more than 70 years of enthusiasm for reptiles (he had been keeping them already as a young boy) and his deep interest in their biology led to a very unique book. Frankfurt June 2016, hardcover, large format (21 29,7 cm), 494 pages, 696 colour photographs, 89 distribution maps.

Arcadia Guide to Reptile & Amphibian Nutrition

Foreword
by Dr Mike Leahy

Nobody I know has put as much thought into how we can learn from nature, using research and common sense, to improve the environments we provide to captive reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. In this respect, John has been an inspiration to me, particularly when I was creating the Zoo-bus, where the depth of his knowledge and his willingness to dispense it were invaluable?qualities that will become very evident as you read this book.

Having studied ecology at university, later specialising in microscopic organisms, and more recently having the privilege of filming some of the world?s most fascinating animals for the National Geographic Channels, it is very clear to me that one of the most fundamental requirements for any organism is nutrition. I well remember spending days changing the composition of growth media in the lab simply to get bacteria to grow successfully, so it is therefore not surprising that far more complex animals, from very diverse and sometimes extreme environments, have specific dietary requirements for good health, and that a balanced diet is essential.

It is all too easy to fall into the trap of anthropomorphising when considering both animal welfare, and the diets non-human animals may require. However tempting it is to assume that other animals? needs may be similar to our own, this may prove to be a big mistake. Very few reptiles?or any other animal, for that matter?exist by eating just one food source, and some food sources that humans enjoy eating can actually be toxic to other animals. As such, John set himself the task of determining what reptiles actually eat in the wild, what nutrients this diet may contain, and finally, how we can replicate this in our collections. Of course, this makes sense, but the work certainly wasn?t easy. I can only imagine the magnitude of the task.

In John?s latest book you are guaranteed to discover many aspects of nutrition that have not been known or widely accepted before, as well as suggestions that may result in your own pet enjoying a longer and more comfortable life. As John says, ?We should be seeking to see captive animals thrive in captivity and not just live a sterile life in a box?. By taking the time to read this book, you may become one step closer to achieving this.

Chimaira The Reptile Skin

Frankfurt 2003, hardcover, 64 colour photos, 200 b/w photos, bilingual (English and German)

The official entitlement and the exigence of nature´s conservation demand a growing standard on the scientific identification of reptiles, both of the living animals and their skins too. In the featured book by Fuchs & Fuchs describe all skins of economical relevant snakes and other reptiles. Many until now unreleased detailed and macroscopic photographs suit as an aid. Especially the macroscopic photos reveal the fact that the morphologic aspects of the reptile´s skin are a scientifically totally underestimated concern due to the well and clearly presented fact, that many recent publications are just to be negated.

Frankfurt Contributions to Natural History, Vol. 48

Frankfurt a.M. 2011, hardcover, 390 pages, 249 colour photos

It could be expected that such an experienced and knowledgeable herpetological author like Dr. Maren Gaulke who worked on the Philippine Islands, particularly on Panay Island, for so many years and who published such a great number of scientific articles on the amphibians and reptiles of that area, would finally present her collected knowledge in the form of a monographic treatment. This has now been realised in the present book, which appears in the white series of the Chimaira Publishing House in Frankfurt am Main. Subtitled with some understatement as An illustrated Field Guide, this book offers much more than what a simple field guide usually offers, because it provides also extensive introductory information on the geology, biogeography of fauna and flora, climate, conservation issues and legislation, and concludes with additonal chapters on doubtful Panay records, snake bite problems, habitat and faunistic relationships, and a voluminous list of references. Maren Gaulke and her coworkers discovered and described numerous new frog, lizard and snake taxa from the Philippine Islands, but her herpetological career started with varanid lizards, especially with the Philippine water monitors of the Varanus salvator group. One of her most important discoveries of any new species concerns a truly spectacular monitor lizard, the second frugivorous Varanus in the world that has become known: the big-growing, uniformly black, impressive Varanus mabitang, which figures with full justification not only as one of the most important flagship species for the conservation of Panays unique fauna, but also as the subject of the first photograph on the very beginning of his brightly illustrated book, which as I am sure will find a broad readership.
