African Journal of Herpetology

Published under the auspices of the Herpetological Association of Africa, the African Journal of Herpetology provides a forum for original research and reviews on, or of relevance to, the biology of African amphibians and reptiles. Previously published under the name Journal of the Herpetological Association of Africa, African Journal of Herpetology celebrated its 60th Volume in 2011. In January 2014, we changed our publishing format to immediately giving authors page numbers after proof stage.

The journal is interdisciplinary and encompasses diverse fields and disciplines, including anatomy, behavioral ecology, biogeography, ecology, genetics, life history studies, morphology, physiology, systematic, taxonomy and toxicology. African Journal of Herpetology publishes original research articles (including reviews), short communications, reviews and mini-reviews. Anecdotal life history notes, range extensions, faunal lists, and teratological notes are not suitable for publication in the journal. Faunal lists are only considered when they include a biogeographical interpretation and the results are of broad zoological interest.
