Amphibians

The basic component of this website is a static, digital version of Atlas of Amphibians in Tennessee published in 1996 by Austin Peay State University's Center of Excellence for Field Biology. Also found on many of the species account pages are links to images of the animal (not included in the original document) and, where appropriate, information on taxonomic changes that have appeared in print since 1996, plus updated distribution maps and bibliographic data on sources of new distribution records. Updates of information on the site occur each quarter following publication of new distribution records in the journal Herpetological Review.

Reptiles

The Atlas of Reptiles in Tennessee website is a collection of distribution maps and other data for reptiles (including crocodilians, turtles, lizards, and snakes) in Tennessee that complements the online version of Atlas of Amphibians in Tennessee. Launched in May 2008, it includes accounts for all of Tennessee's documented native reptilian species. Each accounts includes sections on taxonomy, distribution, museum records by counties, literature records by counties, questionable and/or erroneous records, and conservation status. Also included is an up-to-date Literature Cited section that includes bibliographic information for all publications referenced in the document. Updates of information on the site occur each quarter following publication of new distribution records in the journal Herpetological Review.
