Bibliography of Virginia Herpetology

This searchable PDF allows one to use the scientific name of a species of interest to find all the titles that contain that species. The best way to search is to use the species name only. Full species names with genus and species are used for each keyword, but only the species part is needed. We've included several other words of general interest in citations that did not mention specific names as is often the case with archeological articles. These words are biography, bones, dinosaur, fossil, frog, history, lizard, salamander, snake, and turtle.
