Lizards are the most taxonomically diverse and speciose group of reptiles, with approximately 5,000 species. Serpentes represents the second most diverse and successful group of reptiles, with approximately 3,000 species. Assistant Professor160;Rod Williams and Extension Wildlife Specialist Brian MacGowan of Purdue Forestry and Natural Resources, has authored a book that provides information on the identification, ecology and behavior of snakes and lizards. This colorful resource with maps and photos expands upon their food habits, reproduction and conservation.
