Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles

Publisher Description

The Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles (SSAR) is a not-for-profit organization established to advance research, conservation, and education concerning amphibians and reptiles. It was founded in 1958 and is currently the largest international herpetological society. The Society meets annually, usually in joint venues with other herpetological societies. Members receive the Society's primary research publication, the Journal of Herpetology, and its news-journal, Herpetological Review. SSAR also publishes book length monographs, facsimiles, and a catalogue of American reptiles and amphibians. Grant programs support student research. Conservation and Education committees have extensive outreach components. In order to promote publication of research on amphibians and reptiles, the SSAR has an editorial assistance program for herpetologists who do not have English as their first language.
