Russian Journal of Herpetology

ISSN 1026-2296

RJH (founded in 1993) is an international, multidisciplinary journal and publishes articles covering both basic and applied research on recent and fossil amphibians and reptiles. All aspects of herpetology including systematics, distribution, speciation, phylogeny, morphology as well as behaviour, ecology, and toxinology of amphibians and reptiles will be presented.

Of particular emphasis is the conservation of species of amphibians and reptiles, their associations and habitats. Although much attention is given to fundamental research, papers devoted to breeding in captivity and propagation of amphibians and reptiles will be welcomed and presented in the special part of the journal.

The ultimate aim of the journal is to provide an effective medium for communication of the latest and best scientific information from the expanding, interdisciplinary, and international scientific community focusing on new methods and ideas in progress and to promote cooperation between Russian and foreign scientific and commercial organizations.
