The Status of Herpetology in Southern Africa

  • DG Broadley


The major developments in southern African herpetology during the last decade are reviewed and first consideration is given to the taxonomic work which is essential to provide a sound foundation for subsequent zoogeographical ecological and ethological research. With the passage of time there will be a gradual shift in emphasis from traditional taxonomic studies to projects based upon living animals both in the field and in the laboratory.
