Product Overview

Describing 102 species of salamanders occurring in the southeastern United States, ecologists Joe Mitchell and Whit Gibbons provide us with the most comprehensive and authoritative, yet accessible and fun-to-read, guide to these often secretive, always fascinating wonders of nature.

Did you know? Some salamanders are known to live more than a decade in the wild.

Tiger salamanders walk over winter snow and ice to reach breeding pools.

Salamanders cannot hear airborn sounds.

Green salamanders sometimes lay eggs high in trees.

A guide for people of all ages and levels of knowledge interested in natural history and conservation

Given that 17 percent of the world's species of salamanders live in the Southeast and the scientific and popular concern for the worldwide decline in amphibian populations in general, this guide aims to help foster the growing interest in salamanders as well as cultivate a desire to protect and conserve these fascinating amphibians and their habitats.
