The SHIS series began in 1965 as a "publication" to increase the distribution of indices, translations, bibliographies, and other such materials which are not published as part of a research project, yet are potentially useful to other herpetologists. SHIS is published by the Division of Amphibians and Reptiles. Editors: J. A. Peters, 1-26; G. R. Zug, 27-40 & 44-140; F. J. Irish, 41-42; F. J. Irish & R. I. Crombie, 43.
