The taxonomy and systematics of European reptiles and amphibians have changed a lot in recent years, yet there is no modern, up-to-date field guide available that comprehensively covers all the species. The last illustrated field guide to European reptiles and amphibians was first published 38 years ago, and remains oudated despite occasional reprints and new editions. This major new field guide addresses this deficiency. Every species will be covered in detail with a focus on identification and geographical variation; species texts also cover distribution, habitat and behaviour. A detailed up-to-date map is also included for each species. Superb colour illustrations by talented artist Ilian Velikov depict every species and all major variations, and colour photographs are also included for most species.

In Scotland, serious discussion of the issue began in the 1990s, and the national conservation agency Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH, now NatureScot) suggested a trial reintroduction in 2000. The Government rejected this proposal, but a change of Government and more discussion led to a new proposal, which got the go ahead in 2008. The plan was for a trial reintroduction at a well-contained site in Knapdale Forest, Argyll, to be managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust in collaboration with the Royal Scottish Zoological Society, and to be monitored independently by researchers commissioned by SNH. The Scottish Beaver Trial began in 2009, when 17 wild beavers from Telemark, Norway, were quarantined for six months in Devon, then released in May 2009 at three freshwater lochs in Knapdale. The trial continued until 2014 (Jones and Campbell-Palmer, 2014). SNH chose the monitoring topics: these included beaver ecology, otters, fish, woodland habitat and dragonflies, but NOT amphibians or reptiles (nor did they agree to permit independent study of the effects on herpetofauna). However, another population existed, formed from accidental escapes or releases in Tayside and these animals were unprotected from landowners who objected to their presence. The Tayside population generated more conflict with some landowners, especially in prime agricultural land where the damming of drainage ditches can lead to impacts on arable farming. After consideration of the data generated through the Scottish Beaver Trial, general public support and consultation with various interest groups and land management sectors, the Scottish Government agreed in November 2016 that the beavers could remain in Scotland. Going on further in May 2019 the Government granted legal protection for all beavers living in the wild (although landowners may still apply for a licence to have animals removed if they can show they are causing damage that cannot be mitigated via alternative means).
