Thailand is home to over 350 species of reptiles, consisting of many kinds of turtles and tortoises, lizards, snakes and crocodiles. With its extensive network of protected areas, Thailand is one of the richest and most ecologically diverse countries in the world. However, many of these species are being threatened more than ever before, including habitat loss caused by agricultural expansion and intensification, and from wildlife trade. For herpetologists and naturalists, understanding the reptiles of Thailand is now more important than ever before.

With A Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand, Tanya Chan-ard, John Parr, and Jarujin Nabhitabhata present the definitive resource for identifying and understanding all known species of reptile in the region. It is the only updated and complete guide to the country's reptilian life in existence. The book contains an account of every species, complete with nomenclature, color illustrations, and range maps of known locations. The accounts include discussion of behavior, morphological measurements, and habitat, as well as the most current information on each species' conservation status. The authors explain the current system of classifying the threat level of endangerment, making the presented information and terminology understandable and useful. The introduction to the book discusses the history of herpetology in Thailand, as well as its climate, physiography, and zoogeography. A section on how to use the guide most effectively has also been included to make the book accessible to a wide range of both scientists and nature enthusiasts. A Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand is the definitive and most comprehensive resource for herpetologists, naturalists, and conservationists working in Thailand.

Thus, the goals for the present companion volume are:

  • To provide additional practical information in each of the four evaluator domains (i.e., professional foundations, planning and designing the evaluation, implementing the evaluation plan, and managing the evaluation).
  • To present practical tools and resources that support specific evaluator competencies, whether as an internal or an external evaluator.
  • To offer practical insights on the evaluator competencies from experienced evaluators.
  • To provide practical evaluation exercises and resources that can be used with undergraduate and graduate courses.


Above The Rice Fields Of Pilerne

RRP $13.99

Set in the tiny village of Pilerne, Bardez, Goa, the three Furtado brothers move to Pilerne from Carambolim, their ancestral village. Noted engineers, they have been given the project of building a dam and dykes to control the saline waters of the creek, to save the rice fields from turning into wasteland. Like the famed food and drink of Goa, this family saga is redolent with earthy and piquant flavours it is the story of three generations of a family who uproot themselves to forge a new life in a new land, along with their fears of moving; the tensions of setting up home; and how they finally turn into gauncars (members) of Pilerne.The Furtado family could be any Goan family that has emigrated to a different part of the world in modern times. All Goans are proud of their roots and share a strong Portuguese influence in their cuisine, music, and way of life. And they always love to come back to Goa no matter where they live. This wonderfully human story makes for a compelling read. Here is the real Goa, no longer hidden behind the camouflage and trappings of a world famous tourist destination. There are no beaches, food shacks, luxury resorts and Kashmiri shops just an unvarnished peek at village life. The traditon of diving into wells, enjoying lavish meals, and looking at life and love steeped in typical Goan susegad, is all there for the reader to enjoy.

The Case of the Electrified Envoy is the contest winning story sponsored by the Publisher of the Private Investigators Club series. If you have read the introductions to the other stories in the series, you will appreciate the fact that the story was a last minute entry by the Publisher himself. The story starts with Bobby urging the young detectives to be more professional. To that end, he wants everyone to suggest someone who they can follow as though he were a suspect. They choose an older man who has just moved to Brockville. Dick acts as scout and reports when the man leaves his apartment. Mary scoots over to the supermarket to observe him. Before long all four of the young detectives have the suspect under control. The situation rapidly deteriorates when the suspect's landlady blows their cover. They all congregate in the suspect's apartment and he tells them what he is doing in Brockville. The discussion gets pretty technical and before long Bobby heads home as he cannot understand it. The others listen to the tale of the unlikely research the Professor is planning. He sets up a demonstration of a portal to another world. Mary walks through the portal and promptly disappears. Tommy and Dick are concerned and call the police. Even the Professor is amazed. The story continues with many twists and turns but luckily for those who want to read the next book in the series, all the detectives survive, we believe. The stories in the Private Investigators Club series are "readers" for students of age eight or older. People of any age who are learning English as a Second Language may find them entertaining. This story discusses concepts that may be difficult for an eight year old to understand. Anyone interested in writing in English is invited to produce another story in the series. Details are provided on the Publisher's website. The Publisher wishes to encourage students to do creative writing and will accept submissions on any topic. Periodically, an eBook of submitted stories is published so this is one way for you to become an established author.
