      Plethodon shermani occurs in four disjunct, high-elevation populations in the Unicoi and Nantahala mountains, within the southern Appalachians (Weisrock et al. ). The range lies primarily in North Carolina (Lannoo ), but also extends just into northern Georgia (Graham et al. ), and barely into southeastern Tennessee, where a P. shermani-P. aureolus hybrid population occurs on.   This is still, to my knowledge, the only complete handbook to North American species of salamanders since the classic Handbook by Sherman C. Bishop. It has all the latest scientific findings in the species accounts (as of the late 90s, but still quite up-to-date in most respects), as well as good photos of each species and a section with /5.

The North American genus Plethodon presently has more recog-nized forms than any other genus of salamanders. It is the type genus of the lungless family Plethodontidae, reviewed so ably by Dunn in At present, this is the most successful salamander family; over half of the living species of the Order Caudata are plethodontids.

The fourth Conference on the Biology of Plethodontid Salamanders was held at "The Mountain," in Highlands, North Carolina on JuneHosted by the Highlands Biological Station, and sponsored by the Highlands Biological Foundation, Inc., the conference afforded a state-of-the-art overview of these animals, as evidenced by the contents.

Secretive, nocturnal, and little known, salamanders are often the most abundant vertebrates on the forest floor. This comprehensive volume, the first survey published sincedescribes the ecology, evolution, biodiversity, behavior, and natural history of recognized species of salamanders found in the United States and Canada, from newts and sirens to waterdogs and by: This is a checklist of American amphibians found north of Mexico, based mainly on publications by the Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles.

1. Introduction. The Woodland Salamander genus Plethodon is the largest North American salamander genus with 55 recognized species.
