Abstract

The distributions, variations, and abundances of the 45 species of amphibians and reptiles found in southwestern New England (USA) are described and analyzed

using multivariate statistical techniques. These data are compared to historical information contained in museums and literature reports. Activity and

reproductive parameters are described and compared to published data from other areas of North America. The conservation status of each species is discussed, and where appropriate, recovery strategies proposed.
