One of the most user-friendly field guides I've ever carried. Portable (for what it's worth*), clearly written and well laid-out, with dichotomous keys to help zero in on the ID of most any herp you get a good enough look at while visiting Costa Rica's La Selva Research Station--itself a very well laid-out, user-friendly destination for DIY eco-tourists.

NB: A number of genus names (especially frogs) have changed since the book's publication, but you can still use it for ID, then cross-reference online for the updated names. Same probably true of just about any amphibian field guide that wasn't published more or less yesterday.

*Odds are pretty good you'll be walking in rain when you want to use this book, and it's no kind of waterproof. We brought laminated copies of the keys with us.

Nice compact book. The only trouble is that it is so specific to one little area that it misses species that may be just down the road or just less common in this area. Nice for a quick reference for common species but not as extensive as I would like. The keys are useful. It is not always easy finding a field guide with good keys!

I took this book on a recent research trip to a preserve near La Selva, and used it daily. Not just a field guide with pretty pictures, this book contains a key to the species. Since it is specific to this area of the country, it cut down on the amount of material that had to be sorted through to ID organisms. I could quickly key out species without having to worry about whether or not this was the right area for that particular species. The photos were clear and beautiful, with different color phases and sexual dimorphisms illustrated. If you are traveling to this specific area of Costa Rica, this book is really useful. It's small, lightweight, easy to use, and CHEAP!
