The archipelago of Indo-Malaya, stretching from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, eastward to Timor, is the largest in the world (approximately 14,000 islands), and includes several political entities.
Much of the land area and associated coastal water fall within the political boundaries of a single nation, that of the Republic of Indonesia. However, significant portions are controlled by India, Myanmar or Burma,
Malaysia, and the Philippines. This work is a comprehensive bibliography of the scientific papers, magazine and newspaper articles, books, book reviews, museum catalogs, bibliographies, chapters from books, and theses
that contain references to any species of amphibians and reptiles in this region. Both terrestrial and aquatic taxa are included. Languages in the cited literature include Bahasa Indonesia, Chinese, Dutch, English,
French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
