SOMETHING IN THE AIR
Bernd Eidenmüller has had a passionate interest in varanid species for many years. He has travelled extensively to pursue this passion, particularly in outback Australia, where he has studied and photographed them on many expeditions. In the field of husbandry of these reptiles Bernd has built a solid reputation for successful breeding of many species, beginning with V. timorensis in 1983. In the years since, he has bred a total of 13 species and described, together with Rudolf Wicker, a new species, V. reisingeri in 2005. Bernd has contributed articles on monitors to reptile magazines including iH**p Australia.

GOTCHA!
Israel’s positioning at the juncture of Asia and Africa, and between the Sahara and Arabian deserts in the south, and Mediterranean and mountain regions in the north, make it zoologically very diverse. It packs a variety of landscapes, habitats, vegetation types, and fauna, into a small and easily accessible area. The reptile fauna of Israel is species rich, with nearly 90 species, and highly diverse, with representatives of 26 families. All this wealth can be easily seen, and all is found, within half a day of driving from the main population hubs of the greater Tel Aviv area or Jerusalem. This makes Israel one of the most attractive destinations for reptile enthusiasts and professional herpetologists alike. Amphibians, on the other hand, are less diverse due to Israel’s arid to semi-arid climate and are represented by a total of eight species — but again representing six families. This book presents up-to-date, useful information on the identification, taxonomic status, conservation needs, biogeography, life history, general biology, and potential risk to humans, of all species of reptiles and amphibians currently occurring in Israel: both land and sea, both native and introduced. It is intended both as a field guide and as a source of data on the current status and biology of Israeli reptiles and amphibians, many of which occur in neighboring countries for which no updated field guides are currently available. The book details each species with an updated textual description, colorful images, and, typically, both local and global distribution maps. Species inhabiting sandy habitats are addressed in a special chapter detailing their tracks and how to read them, with the aid of text and photographs. In addition to its species coverage, this book also covers Israel’s unique conservation issues, and surveys its diverse biogeographical habitats, and how they contribute to its rich herpetofauna. It does so with the aid of illustrations, photographs, and textual information.

STRIKE WHILE THE IRON IS HOT
Due to their physiology, morphology and complex life cycles, amphibian species are often highly habitat-specific and particularly threatened by environmental changes. Currently more than one third of all species is believed to be threatened. The worldwide decline of amphibians therefore has become a symbol for the Global Biodiversity Crisis. Whereas in recent years many studies have reported the threat status of amphibians in the northern hemisphere, Latin America and Australia, very little information was available for Africa, in particular for sub-Saharan Africa. This book illustrates the beauty of Afrotropical amphibians as well as their habitats and threats, summarizing our previous knowledge and presenting new facts concerning the status, threats and potential future of amphibians in all sub-Saharan countries, Madagascar and western Indian Ocean islands. It will serve as a guideline for conservationists, decision makers and researchers, and due to its lavishly illustrated layout, will also be attractive to everybody interested in African amphibians in particular and amphibian biology and conservation in general.

H**p Mecca

At a first glance, Chimaira Buchhandelsgesellschaft, located in Frankfurt-Heddernheim since 2004, and in spite of its unusual name, has the appearance of a typical urban book shop – contemporary children and young readers’ books in the window display and two racks with a colourful mix of second-hand books out in front. Otherwise, there are few shops in this street. On entering the welcoming shop and taking a look around it will soon emerge that there is more to it: an antiquarian books department and specialist literature sections in the fields of herpetology, that is amphibians and reptiles, entomology and ichthyology.

How did it happen that all of this was combined under one roof? Founder Andreas S. Brahm, a professional book dealer who learnt his trade in Frankfurt, became self-employed with his first book shop near Frankfurt Zoo in 1990. Right from the start, he felt it was important that »old and new« be mixed, i.e., that there had to be an antiquarian and a contemporary leg. And it had to be a formal shop: »A shop with fixed opening hours conveys a certain sense of genuineness to the customer.« Spurred by his personal interests, he compiled and mailed out in 1993 a small catalogue that listed herpetological publications in stock – the magnitude of the response came as a great surprise to him. This sparked the idea of specializing, and today, »there is no assortment like ours in the whole wide world,« the now fifty-year-old explains with a twinkle in his eye.

Gerold Schipper, with a PhD in German philology and having been »one of the first customers« of Brahm’s, first joined as a freelance associate in 1995 when the first publishing project was turned into reality; he has been an integral part of the team since 2000. Together, they oversee the Edition Chimaira, which, amongst others, publishes the renowned ›Frankfurter Beiträge zur Naturkunde,‹ and under which label about 140 books have been published so far. The publishing and antiquarian legs pollinate each other in that, for example, a collector may pen a preface for a volume of the Edition, or a sought-after scientific treatise may be selected for reprinting. While the general range of books and antiquarian items (including literature specifically on Frankfurt and ›Insel-Bücherei‹) cater rather for local customers, the more scientifically minded clientele interested in herpetological works can be found throughout Germany and abroad. Purchases of libraries in this specialist sector usually stem from scientists who retire from their posts. One such collection was recently acquired from Switzerland, and another one was purchased from Argentina a few years back. ›Shopping trips‹ are not required, says Brahm, with offers often coming in all by themselves as a result of the fire-wire network that exists between herpetologists. Or customers would sometimes point out opportunities for making an acquisition. On the other hand, the grapevines will quickly spread the word when Chimaira has bought up something interesting, and the telephone often starts ringing even before all the new books have been catalogued.
