Unfortunately, the sale of the RepFocus e-book edition has been cancelled until further notice due to a combination of technical problems and the corona situation in general.
The taxonomic section of this website will continue to be updated regularly as usual.
Check 'Recent updates' above.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
This website is a limited version of the e-book RepFocus - A Survey of the Reptiles of the World.
The 1st edition of the e-book was published on June 5th, 2019.
Its contents reflect the state of knowledge current to December 31st, 2018.
It is delivered on a USB stick packed in a DVD box (cover, left).
The e-book is structured and navigated through exactly as the website.
Inside the cover is also a short instruction on how to use the e-book.
To get a more detailed impression of the differences between this website and the e-book edition, have a look at the large selection of
sample pages from the e-book
or at the comparison scheme.
If you appreciate RepFocus, I recommend that you purchase a copy of the e-book.
By doing so, you will get access to all information without limitations and secure yourself a lasting, digital copy of the latest edition of RepFocus and the wealth of information it contains.
The website will only be accessible as long as I am here to pay for the web domain!
Please, keep in mind that recently described new species, genera, other taxonomic changes, distribution maps, etc. are added to the website continuously,
but they are not included in the e-book edition, which for obvious reasons remain unchanged until the second edition of the e-book is published (date not set).
Consequently, you may experience som discrepancies between the website and the e-book edition.
Also be aware that the regional checklists are not updated in the website until the second edition of the e-book has been published.
Due to these differences in the updating procedures, discrepancies between regional checklist and the taxonomic checklists may occur, including species which need to be added or removed from
regional checklist or changes in nomenclature or taxonomy that needs to be updated.
Please consult the "Recent updates" page in the website (menu above) for the latest taxonomic changes.
