Baja California's ecological transformations and diverse climactic regimes have contributed to its biotic diversity. This book examines the physiographic nature of Baja California to provide better insights into the distribution and geographic variation of its herpetofauna. It discusses the biological exploration and history of herpetological research in Baja California and the Gulf of California (the Sea of Cortés). It also provides information about faunal relationships, historical biogeography, and ecological biogeography of amphibians and reptiles in these regions.

Keywords:   Baja California, biotic diversity, herpetofauna, Sea of Cortés, amphibians, reptiles
