EFA Southwest Chapter Meeting for February
Larry Jones, co-editor (with Rob Lovich) of Lizards of the American Southwest
The book covers all 96 species found in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and Texas west of the Pecos River. Readers learn where to find lizards and how to identify them, along with detailed information on habitat, natural history, taxonomy, viewing tips, plus hundreds of photos, illustrations, and maps. He will share his experiences working with a large project that involved pulling together multiple chapters from a large number of contributors, finding and getting permissions for the images, drawings, and maps to be included in the book, and finding/working with a non-profit for funding. His book is an informative examination and presentation of our colorful southwest lizards and reptiles. It should be a fun presentation.
