Introduction to Herpetology

Herpetology is the study of reptiles and amphibians. The term is derived from Linnea’s classification in which he combined reptiles and amphibians into the one category. Herpetology examines the biology and ecology of these animals and their importance at a global scale. Learn about the scope and nature of reptiles; how to identify credible resources, and how to start networking with organisations and individuals involved with the study of reptiles around the world.
