To determine trends in either frog distribution or abundance in the State of Louisiana, we reviewed and analyzed frog call data from the Louisiana Amphibian Monitoring Program (LAMP). The data were collected between 1997 and 2017 using North American Amphibian Monitoring Program protocols. Louisiana was divided into three survey regions for adminis...

The animal most often associated with Louisiana, the American alligator, is but one among 147 amphibian and reptile species found in the state. From the ubiquitous green tree frog to the elusive slimy salamander, the variety of the state’s wildlife can be intriguing and overwhelming. In content that is both accessible to laypersons and relevant to...

Miscellaneous material of African Leptotyphlopidae are discussed: An overlooked senior synonym of Namibiana latifrons, mental scale characteristics in Tricheilostoma greenwelli, an insular record of Leptotyphlops pembae, a range expansion of Myriopholis adleri (new to the country of Ghana), and cephalic scale terminology of Rhinoleptus koniagui. CO...

Snakes of the World: A Catalogue of Living and Extinct Species-the first catalogue of its kind-covers all living and fossil snakes described between 1758 and 2012, comprising 3,509 living and 274 extinct species allocated to 539 living and 112 extinct genera. Also included are 54 genera and 302 species that are dubious or invalid, resulting in reco...

An adult male Alligator mississippiensis (American Alligator) with a large growth on he right forelimb was harvested from the wild by a nuisance-control trapper in Louisiana. The mass was determined histologically to be a fibromyxoma. To our knowledge, this neoplasm has not previously been described in American Alligators.

All but two of the 121 species of the snake family Leptotyphlopidae are characterized by possessing 14 scale rows around the body throughout most of its length. The exceptions, both possessing 16 scale rows, are Rhinoleptus koniagui (Villiers) of the Guinean region, and Leptotyphlops parkeri Broadley, known from one specimen from Ethiopia. Accordin...

Measurements made on preserved anuran specimens are often used in studies of systematics, ecology and evolution. Here, we examine the effect of preservation on one of the most common measurement of frogs, snout-urostyle length (SUL). Preservation had significanteffects on the SUL of 13 of the 14 species of North American frogs included in this stud...

We used literature records, unpublished museum records, and unvouchered reports to evaluate the status of the Mediterranean gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus) in Louisiana since its last comprehensive treatment in 1989. During the last 17 years, the known geographic range of this species has expanded from four to 30 parishes following a pattern that is...

Two hundred alligator snapping turtles were trapped at an average rate of 0.057 turtles per trap-night in all but 1 of 33 sites in southeastern Louisiana. Trap rate varied between sites, by harvest pressure levels at sites, and by season, but not by hydrology. Perceived trap rate differences under different harvest regimes appeared to be a function...
Chapter
Early warnings of amphibian declines have been realized as species have vanished, or disappeared from large portions of their ranges. These population declines have alerted biologists and conservation agencies to the need to combine proactive evaluation of status and trends with retroactive research on causes of disappearances. An abundance of base...

We performed phylogenetic analyses of the Asian coral snakes (Elapidae: Calliophis and Maticora) based on morphological and cytochrome b sequence characters, comparing them also to American coral snakes (Micruroides and Micrurus). Asian coral snakes fall into three major clades: (1) the tropical mainland species C. beddomei, C. bibroni, C. gracilis...
