A self-taught artist who honed his skills by painting for up to 100/week while living in his van, Carl Brest van Kempen has grown in stature to become one of the world's premier wildlife artists. Carel’s paintings have received wide acclaim and have been exhibited around the globe, and in the United States have received a number of prestigious awards, among them the Arts for the Parks Wildlife Award in 1992, and the “Best of Show” at the 1995 Southeastern Wildlife Art Expo and 1995 and 1998 Pacific Rim Wildlife Art Shows. In 1994, he was elected a member of the Society of Animal Artists, which awarded him their highest honor “The Award of Excellence” in 1994, 1996, 1997, 2004, and 2006. After receiving this award five times, Carel is now considered a Master Signature Member of this prestigious society. Brest van Kempen’s work can be found in the permanent collections of The Springville Art Museum in Utah, The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, The World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise, Idaho, and the Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont. Carel has illustrated a number of books, including Frank DeCourten’s Dinosaurs of Utah, published in 1998 by The University of Utah Press, Brian Kend’s Pythons of Australia, published in 1997 by Canyonlands Publishing Group, LC, and several books published by Eagle Mountain Publishing, LC.

AMPHIBIANS, REPTILES, AND TURTLES IN KANSAS, Collins, Joseph T., Suzanne L. Collins, and Travis W. Taggart.
2 Collins, Joseph T., Suzanne L. Collins, and Travis W. Taggart. AMPHIBIANS, REPTILES, AND TURTLES IN KANSAS
Eagle Mountain, Utah, Eagle Mountain Publishing, LC, 2010, 0972015450 / 978-0-9720154-5-5 Harcover, New, Errol D. Hooper, Jr., 
xvi + 312 pp., 497 color images, 97 color maps, 65 black & white illustrations. Amphibians, Reptiles, and Turtles in Kansas displays the herpetofauna of Kansas in vivid color, through the lens craft of co-author Suzanne L. Collins. Innovative features include the recognition of turtles (Class Chelonia) as a distinct evolutionary lineage, the inclusion of a phylogeny for the Phylum Chordata, and the elimination of subspecies for the traditionally recognized herpetofaunal groups. With over 1,700 entries, the bibliography in this book is the most complete ever assembled for a state field guide. The range maps are in color and dots show the specific county localities for each species. The text includes the most current data for each herpetofaunal species found in Kansas, in addition to their conservation status, where relevant. Richly illustrated identification keys can be useful in the field, as well as in the classroom and laboratory. Information on the identification, size, distribution, natural history, and pertinent literature references are included for each of the nearly 100 species of amphibians, reptiles, and turtles found in the state.

CONSERVATION OF MESOAMERICAN AMPHIBIANS AND REPTILES, Wilson, Larry David, Josiah H. Townsend, and Jerry D. Johnson (Eds.).
5 Wilson, Larry David, Josiah H. Townsend, and Jerry D. Johnson (Eds.). CONSERVATION OF MESOAMERICAN AMPHIBIANS AND REPTILES
Eagle Mountain, Utah, Eagle Mountain Publishing, LC, 2010, 0972015442 / 978-09720154-4-8 Hardcover, New, 
xvii + 812 pp., 21 contributions, 43 authors, 44 color photographs, 86 figures, 148 tables, 9 appendices. Mesoamerica, often called Middle America, is one of the world’s major biodiversity hotspots. The herpetofauna of this region consists of approximately 1,900 species, of which about 1,000 are endemic to specific countries. Conservation of Mesoamerican Amphibians and Reptiles (CMAR) represents the most comprehensive compilation of conservation-related herpetological contributions ever assembled for Mesoamerica. This volume will serve as a valuable reference for most future conservation work in this region. Nearly four years in the making, CMAR contains a complete conservation assessment of the herpetofauna of this megadiverse region, in addition to distributional analyses from the perspectives of country, physiographic region, elevation, and vegetation zone. The database and wealth of information included in this work are unprecedented in the field of conservation biology. Chapters on herpetofaunal conservation are featured for each of the Mesoamerican countries, with Mexico divided into four regions. Other feature chapters include such topics as the Global Amphibian Assessment, recent taxonomic changes, herpetofaunal distribution patterns, and a closing chapter examining the biodiversity significance, conservation status, and future challenges we face in attempting to save the entire Mesoamerican herpetofauna. Several ancillary chapters on a host of conservation issues also are included. The systematics of the Mesoamerican herpetofauna is discussed and brought up to date, highlighted with extensive commentary on current taxonomic problems. An addendum provides a summary of recent taxonomic publications. This volume contains something for everyone with a serious interest in herpetology, conservation biology, zoo biology, or those involved with governmental policy structure regarding conservation and/or environmental problems. Perhaps more importantly, this book will serve as a source of inspiration for future research projects, especially for biologists and conservationists who seek to salvage as much of the spectacular diversity and endemicity of Mesoamerica as possible. A book for every serious herpetologist, onservationist,conservation organization, and zoological institution. ORIGINAL PRICE $135.00
