HERPS Visual Learning Software Download

HERPS Visual Learning Software is a program designed to teach users to identify reptiles and amphibians in the Southeastern U.S. before they engage in fieldwork. By examining a series of images, users holistically develop a recognition/identification pattern of these organisms. Common names and scientific names can be learned and practiced. The program can be used by individuals or to facilitate classroom instruction and assessment.
