Common Names 7th Edition
Lawrence, Kansas - 3/30/2009
CNAH COMMON NAMES LIST SEVENTH EDITION SCHEDULED
The Center for North American Herpetology is pleased to announce that, through the generosity of Touchstone Energy, Washington, D. C., funding for the seventh edition of "Standard Common and Current Scientific Names for North American Amphibians, Turtles, Reptiles, and Crocodilians" by Joseph T. Collins and Travis W. Taggart has been secured in full. We anticipate that the seventh edition will appear in early 2014.
Copies of the sixth edition, which appeared in 2009, can be downloaded gratis from the CNAH PDF Library. The new sixth edition (2009) was published because of the large number of taxonomic changes that have occurred since September 2002. The seventh edition will be published because of the changes that will occur in the coming years.
Users of the CNAH list should continue to monitor the foundation's web site, in order to be kept abreast daily of the proposed taxonomic changes to the North American herpetofauna. This service is available for North America only on the CNAH web site.
Individuals wishing to download and/or print a copy of the 2009 sixth edition should go to
CNAH is the most frequently-accessed academic herpetological web site on the internet.
