Summary:
Amphibians, crocodilians, reptiles, and turtles, oh my! At the Center for North American Herpetology (CNAH), you’ll probably exclaim “oh my!,” when you get a gander at the amount of hyperlinked content available through the site. The categories alone are daunting—Common/Scientific Names, Taxonomy, Herpetological Societies, Academic/Research Links, Current News, Jobs/Grad Study, Meetings, Announcements, Publications, Forums, Literature Database, and more. Oh my, indeed. I’m not aware of other significant herpetology sites and that may be because this one is so extensive that there is no room for others. A “must” for herpetologists and a “you really oughta check out” for everyone else interested in efficient information organization.
