Perpetual Notion Machine host Catherine Garvens speaks with the editors of the new book Amphibians and Reptiles of Wisconsin, published November 1, 2022 by the University of Wisconsin Press. The book is a “state-of-the-field synthesis” that includes hundreds of color photographs and illustrations, along with research and conservation notes designed to be accessible to the non-scientist nature lover, while serving as a definitive guide for scientists studying the state’s herpetofauna–frogs, toads, salamanders, snakes, lizards, and turtles.
